Good To Know

The less time between the when your food is harvested and when it's eaten, the more nutrients it packs. Most of the winter-grown produce at the Pleasantville Farmers Market is harvested just a day or two before. So when you eat locally-grown food, you not only put more money back into local economy; you not only put less pollution into the air from shipping; you also get the most nutrition for you and your family. That's good eating.

Recipe Text

Prep: 5 minutes

Cook: 5 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 8 large grey sole fillets
  • 3 Tbsp salted butter
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp chives, finely minced
  • Squeeze of lemon


This recipe is pure simplicity, and highlights the fantastic flavor of grey sole. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Rinse the sole fillets in cold water and dry them well with a paper towel. Lay the fillets onto a parchment-lined or nonstick backing sheet (a flat sheet like a cookie sheet works best) and brush each fillet very lightly with extra virgin olive oil. Make sure that the sole is brought to room temperature by leaving it out on the counter for about 10 minutes; this will also ensure that the oven is sufficiently preheated. Once placed in the oven, set the timer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the 2 Tbsp salted butter and heat until slightly foamy and light brown. Add the minced chives, and remove from heat immediately. Remove the fish as soon as the timer rings (5 minutes is perfect). Plate the fish, and spoon the brown butter and chives over each fillet. A few drops of lemon on each fillet will lift the flavors even more.

Recipe Notes: This recipe is as simple as it gets, and is one of the best for enjoying the unadulterated flavors of grey sole. Do not worry about seasoning the fillets with salt and pepper- the salt in the butter is more than enough with the delicate flavors of the sole. Enjoy!

Market Sources: The ingredients for this simple recipe are available at the Market: Pura Vida Fisheries grey sole fillets, butter from either Kriemhild Dairy Farm or Bobolink Dairy & Bakehouse, extra virgin olive oil from Demi Olive Oil, and chives from farms such as Cowberry Crossing Farm, Gakeski Produce, J&A Farm, Little Seed Gardens, and Neversink Farm.
