Fillet of Sole Gruyere

This is a really delicious fish recipe that my mom and I make for dinner parties. It's great because you can make it a couple hours a head of time and throw it in the oven at the last minute. Serve with rice or quinoa.

3 T butter
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 lb. mushrooms
1 c. grated Gruyere (or a little more)
4 fillets of sole
1/2 t paprika
salt and pepper
fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 400.
Melt butter, saute onion and mushrooms.
Butter baking dish.
Cover bottom with 1/2 of onion and mushroom mix.
Sprinkle with 1/2 of the cheese.
Fold each fillet in half and place on top of stuff in dish.
Top with rest of onion and mushroom, then remaining cheese.
Season with salt, pepper, paprika.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Then brown top quickly under broiler.
Garnish with parsley.

I really get inspired by fish dish recipes - thanks! I love that this is one you traditionally make with your mom. Tell me more about the idea behind folding the filet in half - does this keep it moist?
