Fillet of Sole with Barley and Asparagus
1 cup pearl barley
3 cups water
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes and juice
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
4 fresh sole fillets, about 12 ounces (if using frozen fillets, defrost)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
12 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed to 6 inches in length and blanched (if using frozen asparagus, defrost)
1/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmesan cheese
In medium saucepan with lid bring water to a boil. Add barley and return to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook 45 minutes or until barley is tender and liquid is absorbed. In 11x7x2-inch baking dish, combine cooked barley, tomatoes and juice, and Italian seasoning. Sprinkle each sole fillet with lemon juice. Place 3 asparagus spears in center of each fillet and roll up. Arrange rolled fillets on top of barley, seam-side down. Set aside. In small bowl combine mayonnaise, green onion and mustard. Spoon sauce over fillets and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake in preheated 350° F oven for 25 minutes or until sole flakes easily with fork. Makes 4 servings.
