  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt, or to your taste

  6. Serve next to white rice or roasted Greek potatoes and a simple Mediterranean salad.

Notes

  • If sole fillet is not available to you, you can try a different white fillet of fish. Only, you might have to adjust baking time as Sole Fillet is quite a thin fillet of fish.
