Preparation Time

15 minutes




  • 75g basmati rice

  • 300g skinless sole fillets

  • 2 tbsp plain flour

  • 25g butter

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 spring onions, sliced

  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar

  • 150ml unsalted or weak fish stock

  • 100ml double cream

  • 1 tbsp snipped fresh chives

  • 100g white grapes, chopped

  • 1 tsp lemon juice

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper (for babies over 1 year)

  1. Cook the rice according to the packet instructions, then drain.

  2. Cut the sole into 6 goujon shapes. Season lightly with salt and pepper (if using) and toss in the flour. Heat the butter in a small frying pan over a high heat. Fry the floured goujons for 1½ minutes on each side until cooked through, then remove from the heat, set aside and keep warm. You may need to cook them in two batches, in which case use half the butter for each batch.

  3. Place the pan back over a low heat and add the oil. Add the spring onions and sauté for 2 minutes, then add the vinegar and cook until it evaporates.

  4. Add the stock and let it bubble away until it has reduced by half. Pour in the cream and bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and add the chives, grapes and lemon juice.

  5. Arrange the sole goujons and rice on plates and spoon over the grape sauce.
