There are lots of soles/flounders on the Westcoast of North America but the king of all flatfish is Petrale Sole. Petrale Sole (also called Brill) is actually not a sole but rather a flounder. It's considered to be the most flavorful and desirable of the Pacific flounders and has a mild, delicately nutty, sweet flavour with small, firm flakes. Caught of the coast of Oregon, wild Petrale Sole checks all the boxes for sustainability. It's Ocean Wise approved, Seafood Watch best choice and MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified.
These premium flatfish fillets are very versatile. They can be baked, broiled, pan fired, deep fried or sautéed. Why not prepare the fillets in a classic sole meunière style that highlights the simple flavours of fresh fish, butter, lemon and parsley. Want a little meatier piece of whitefish, why not try our Scrumptious Halibut Portions.
The Petrale Sole filet was delicious, moist and flaky with perfect texture. I breaded the fillets in panko and baked them. I don’t use the standard egg and flour approach anymore. Flavour the panko with of Nordic Summer spice blend and mix it well. then “toast” it in a wide bowl in the microwave in 20 second increments stirring to ensure that it doesn’t burn. Crush a garlic clove into a tablespoon of dijon mustard, add a tablespoon of olive oil and two teaspoons of lemon juice, a teaspoon of cider vinegar, dried dill, salt and pepper. coat the fillets in the wet bowl until fully covered Then place and turn them in the panko to coat both sides fully Place the filets in a large pan so that they don’t touch Put the pan in the middle of a 425 degree oven for seven or eight minutes.
Oh boy that sounds like a good recipe, especially including the Nordic Summer spice! We will have to give it a try during a team lunch here at Organic Ocean!
