If sole isn't available, you can substitute another delicate, mild-tasting white fish, like cod, red snapper, or tilapia.

Place the flour on a plate. Season the sole with the salt. Lightly coat each fillet in the flour, shaking off any excess. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Slice the lemon into 12 thin circles and add them to the skillet. Cook until the lemon is lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Push the lemon to the side of the skillet and add the sole. (You may need to cook it in batches.) Cook until the sole is the same color throughout and flakes easily, about 2 minutes per side. Add the remaining butter and the capers to the skillet. Remove from heat and tilt the skillet to swirl until the butter melts. Transfer the sole and lemon to individual plates and spoon the capers and butter over the top.
