Dover Sole Suggestions?

I'm not particularly experienced in cooking fish. Well slowly experimenting. So have whole dover sole for dinner tonight.
What should I do with em?
There seem to be suggestions to just grill them simply with some butter. (i.e. Broil in the US)
Actually there is some fresh dill from some other dish - butter, dill, dover sole, lemon juice?
Just don't over cook it/them. They only need a minute or so. I'd poach them. Don't attempt to turn them or they'll look like a dogs breakfast. LOL
How about doing a 'Sole Bonne Femme'? Easy: Butter/mushrooms/chopped shallots/fresh parsley/dry white wine and 'Sauce Veloute (basically just a roux with fish stock slowly stirred in until you get the consistency the way you want it.) No fish stock? Use a few drops of bottled clam juice or a cube of fish bouillon or a few drops of fish sauce diluted in a cup or so of water. Make the sauce and gently poach the sole in it. Cover with lid. Very low heat.
