Sole with salsa

Fish is one of the harder items to cook in a solar oven because it requires monitoring. If left they will dry out. The opposite of chicken.

Six fillets local caught sole (relatively cheap light fish.)
Squeeze half a lemon into water and soak the fish in the lemon juice acidated water for ten minutes.

Place the fish in the 7” round pot. Dust with salt as needed and dust with paprika. Cook in the summer position for 40 minutes. Remove the lid and check the fish. A toothpick inserted into the fish should come out dry. Pour out the stock. The fish will be poached in its own juices. If necessary cook ten minutes more.

Meanwhile chop one tomato small. Add half a red onion chopped tiny. Add half a garlic clove chopped fine. Add a few sprigs fine chopped cilantro. Squeeze the rest of the lemon over the salsa and add salt to taste. Mix and set aside.

Serve a spoon of salsa on top of each fish fillets.

You can use the balance of the salsa when cooking rice. Or add a chile and eat with tortilla chips.
