Preparation / Directions:

STEP ONE: Fold sole fillets in half and place in a baking dish with shrimp, oysters, and mushrooms. Cover with stock, white wine, shallots, and lemon juice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, cover with oiled paper, and poach in a 350F F oven for 20 minutes. STEP TWO: Remove sole fillets and keep them hot in an ovenproof casserole. Top with mushroom caps.
