Cooking Preparation of the Recipe:

4 md Tomatoes, rips 2 ea Sole, fillets, (about 6
14 tb Butter, unsalted, cut into -- ounces each), split
-- pieces, plus more as -- lengthwise
-- needed 1/2 c Wine, white, dry
4 sm Onion, white, thinly 1 tb Parsley, chopped
-- sliced 1 tb Chives, fresh, chopped
2 tb Shallot, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 300 F. Carefully cut the out core of each
tomato, removing a small, narrow plug and leaving the tomato intact.
Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water for a few seconds; drain under
cold water and slip off their skins. Cut a lid from the smooth bottom
of each tomato (opposite the core) and set aside. With a melon scoop
or spoon, carefully hollow out the pulp and seeds from the tomatoes,
leaving a neat shell. Place the tomatoes and their lids in a small
buttered baking dish, sprinkle with salt and pepper, set aside.

In a small skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of butter and saute the
sliced onions over medium heat until softened but not browned, 5 to 7
minutes. Spoon cooked onions into the hollowed tomatoes, dividing

On a work surface, gently flatten the sole fillets, tapping them
with the side of a wide knife blade. Carefully roll up each fillet,
beginning with the small (tail) end and with the smooth, shiny skinned
surface on the inside. Lightly butter a heat-proof shallow baking dish
in which the fillets will fit compactly. Scatter shallot into the
dish, then arrange rolled fish fillets over shallot. Salt and pepper
the fish lightly and pour wine over all. Cover the dish with buttered
parchment or waxed paper, buttered side down. Place the pan over
medium heat and bring almost to a boil. Place the pan of fish and the
pan of tomatoes in the oven. Bake until fillets are just cooked
through, 6 to 8 minutes.


Remove the pans from the oven. With a slotted spatula, lift each
fillet, draining all of the liquid back into the pan, and place each
fillet upright in a tomato. Place the pan of fish-cooking liquid over
high heat and boil the liquid until it's reduced to a few tablespoons
of syrupy liquid. Reduce the heat to very low. Whisk in the
remaining 12 tablespoons of butter, 1 or 2 pieces at a time, adding
more only when the previous addition has become creamy and smooth.
Strain this sauce into a small bowl, stir in the parsley and chives
and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Place each stuffed tomato on a warm serving plate. Spoon some of
the sauce over each fillet and around each tomato. Gently replace the
lids and serve immediately.
