Substitute for fillet of sole

mocro | Mar 18, 2007 10:55 AM

I'm trying a new recipe tomorrow night for Dover Sole w/Grapes + Capers that I found on Epicurious for someone who adores sole. I live in Pasadena (CA) and have tried all the obvious places (Gelson's, Bristol Farms, Whole Foods - even Fish King), but nobody has sole. They all blame the weather "up north."

I'm thinking of substituting tilapia. Any advice on whether that's my best substitute? Do you think I have to fess up to it being tilapia. I believe it'll cook/taste like sole, but will it look like sole? Thanks!
