Baked Italian Citrus Sole

If there is one thing I'm sure my kids will eat, it's fish. Though their favourite way to eat fish is battered and fried, I try to bake it more often than most. Not only is it more healthy, I love switching up flavours. Sole is such a nice light fish, that you don't want to over power it too much. Lately I've really been into lemon and butter baked sole, but when I found some pine nuts in the freezer, I decided to go in more of an Italian direction with this recipe.

 The kids really enjoyed this. Broiling the fish quickly and for a short period of time, makes for a very tender fish. I used Pampered Chef's Citrus Basil Rub and that paired with fresh lemon juice was a nice fresh contrast with the buttery pine nuts. Finished off with some fresh basil, this fish seems elegant, with no fuss at all!!

8 filets of sole
2 Tbs butter, melted
juice of 1 lemon
3/4 tsp Pampered Chef Citrus Basil Rub
1/3 C toasted pine nuts, chopped
1 Tbs fresh basil, chopped

Preheat your oven to the broil setting. Place oven rack in the upper third portion of your oven.

Place fish on a rimmed baking pan (similar to Pampered Chef's Large Bar Pan). In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, Citrus Basil rub and lemon juice. Pour over each fish filet and place under broiler and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle each fillet evenly with pine nuts. Return under broiler for 3 more minutes, until the fish flakes easily. Sprinkle with fresh basil, before serving.
Serves 4.
