sole with lemon-butter sauce

I sometimes read notes Owen's daycare leaves behind about what he's been eating and enjoying. His daycare offers an amazing variety of food, just as diverse as our dinners at home, so I figured his log could help us decide on what to have for dinner. One recent note was that he "loved the lemon fish", and after recently working on room service menus that included appetizing descriptions of Lemon Sole I knew we had to make it happen. So we decided to try the recipe for Sole with Lemon-Butter Sauce from Great Food Fast.
I've always thought it was pretty to roll sole fillets, but there is method behind this presentation. It keeps the fish moist and it's actually a lot easier to eat. We decided on a side of Lemon Pea Orzo (no recipe here, just as the name states along with olive oil, s&p). Just like the daycare log indicated, Owen LOVED this dinner. Both sole and orzo are mild, so a little lemon, salt & pepper go a long way. The only downside to this dinner is that we came across a couple small pin bones while eating sole, so I'm a little hesitant to make this dinner a regular thing. But it was very nice and light dinner that pleased all three of us.
