Sole with Almonds and lemon sauce

Sole is probably the simplest fish to cook.  Don't buy frozen sole, it turns to mush. There are small bones in sole that are impossible to remove but they cook into crunchy bits so don't pose a problem. Salt and season the fish then coat with flour.  Lay in hot oil and cook the flour crisp on the edges. When both sides are crisp lay it on lemon sauce and top with butter roasted slivered almonds.

Lemon sauce: 

1 tsp flour
1 tsp butter
chicken stock
lemon juice

Cook flour taste off and add chicken stock whisking till it's a smooth sauce.  Add a few drops of lemon juice till the sauce is tangy and delicious.

The brussels sprouts were steamed and the rice was cooked with paprika. Simple but delicious.
