Tapenade Sole Bundles
Notes: All sole are members of the flounder family. You'll find the largest variety at a fish market. Choices may include petrale, English, sand, and Rex sole, starry flounder, and sand dabs (usually whole). Boned sole fillets vary considerably in size - from 2 to 8 ounces, depending upon the variety. Some fillets are skinned, others aren't, as the skin is very thin and tender. To make this dish, choose thin fillets; thicker pieces will take a bit longer to cook.
