Serves: 4 person(s)

Preparation Time: 5 mins
Cooking Time: 10 mins


    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1/2 cup finely-diced shallots
    1/2 cup Chardonnay wine
    1 cup fresh orange juice
    1 Tbsp Dijon-style mustard
    1 Tbsp butter, softened
    1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
    1/4 cup fresh sliced ginger
    4 Alaska Sole fillets (about 5 oz each), fresh, thawed, or frozen
    1 pinch favorite seafood seasoning, to taste


    Heat oil in small saucepan. Add shallots and stir-fry until lightly browned. Add wine; continue cooking, stirring and scraping down sides until wine is almost evaporated. Stir in orange juice and mustard. Simmer until sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Stir in butter and parsley; keep warm.

    Pour 1-inch water into deep frying pan. Add ginger to water; bring to a boil. Turn off heat. Place metal steamer basket in pan and open up sides.

    Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Sole fillets under cold water; place fillets in steamer. (Cut fillets in half, if needed, to fit in steamer).

    Return water to boil; cover loosely and steam just until fish is opaque throughout, about 4 to 5 minutes. (Reduce cooking time by half for fresh or thawed fillets.) Sprinkle with seafood seasoning.

    Spoon sauce over fillets to serve.
