Sole Meunière - Mushroom Soy Cream Sauce

Sole Meunière - Mushroom Soy Cream Sauce

This mushroom cream sauce is perfect for the autumn season. I made it healthy by using soy milk. This sauce goes well with salmon or white fish meuniere.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Shimeji mushrooms
1/2 packet
Button mushrooms
Soy milk
150 ml
a small amount
a small amount
White wine
2 tablespoons
1 clove
1 teaspoon
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
a little
Italian parsley
a small amount


1. Fillet the sole, and pat dry with paper towels.
2. Cut the egg plant into 1.5 cm thick and the same width as the sole fillet. Cut the shimeji into the length so that the caps stick out when wrapped with the fillet.
3. Coat a frying pan with oil, season the egg plant and shimeji with salt and pepper, and cook lightly.
4. Blanch the tomato, peel, remove the seeds, and cut into 1 cm cubes.
5. To make the sauce. Lightly crush the garlic with a knife, julienne the onion, slice the mushrooms, and cut the shimeji into bite-size pieces.
6. Pour the olive oil into a pot, and sauté the garlic and onion without burning.
7. When the onion has cooked through, add the mushrooms, and sauté. Add the white wine, and sauté quickly.
8. Lower the heat, and add the soy milk. Season with salt and pepper. Once you have added the soy milk, do not bring to a boil.
9. Add katakuriko dissolved in water to thicken the sauce. Remove the sauce from the heat if possible.
10. Season the sole fillets with salt and pepper, and wrap the egg plant and shimeji from Step 3. Secure the rolled end with a toothpick, and lightly dust with plain flour.
11. Coat the frying pan with olive oil, add butter, and sauté the rolled sole fillets. Cover the pan with a lid and steam-fry.
12. Warm up the sauce. Once the sole has cooked through, remove the toothpicks, and transfer to serving plates. Pour the sauce, garnish with tomato, parsley, and lemon, and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had sole meuniere in Belgium, and I was blown away by the dish (I'd never had it before).
I happened to find some sole at the supermarket near to our house, so I cooked it with mushroom cream sauce.
