  4. Squeeze the lemon juice and add it to the parsley
  5. Heat half of the butter in a pan over medium-high heat and add the soles to the pan
  6. Fry the soles for 4 minutes per side, then transfer them to a heat-proof platter
  7. Drizzle the lemon parsley mix over the soles
  8. Add the remain butter to the butter in the pan and heat over medium-high heat until it starts to smoke and turns golden
