Sole Fillets Stuffed with Olives & Herbs

Are you looking for a tasty fish dish?

I discovered this memorable recipe some time ago and today I want to share with you!

It’s a very simple and creative dish that really adds a boost of taste to any white fish. I’ve used sole fillets, a fish easy to digest, low in fat, high in protein and rich in essential nutrients like selenium, vitamin D, phosphorus and vitamin B-12.

For this recipe, we’re going to stuffed tender sole fillets with a mixture of Pitted Black Olives in Brine and aromatic herbs. The perfect combinations to create a fresh new flavour that you’ll love!

Pitted Black Olives in Brine are an essential ingredient of the Mediterranean diet. They can enrich a variety of dishes but are also ideal for preparing aperitifs or served “as is” with cold dishes.

These stuffed sole fillets have just the right amount of flavour to make this recipe stand out from a common fish dish and it’s really simple to prepare. Just try my:
