About our sole
Despite its name, petrale sole (Eopsetta jordani) is a species more closely related to flounder.
Vital Choice wild petrale sole is sustainably harvested off the coasts of Washington and Oregon.
Our sole portions are flash-frozen, and then "glazed" to retain moisture and ensure the freshest possible taste and texture.
This subtly delicious fish is an excellent source of low-fat protein, features ample amounts of omega-3s, and provides calcium and other important nutrients.
Average Ratings: 4
"Mild and Tasty Whitefish" Review: This fish reminds me of flounder. I often bake it with Parmesan cheese mixed with some mayo. It is really good.
"Great fish for stuffing" Review: I often order this fish and have never had a bad piece. I usually stuff with baby shrimp or leftover Thanksgiving/Christmas stuffing and serve with cream sauce over. Sides of broccoli and/or mashed potatoes with a small salad makes a quick to prepare and lovely to eat meal!!
"Reminds Me of My Childhood" Review: This is a type of fish my mother used to prepare when I was growing up. It isn’t as expensive as other fish, but if you know how to prepare it, it tastes great. It does have a slightly more fishy taste than some other white fish, which is fine by me. It’s very much like flounder. This is my third time ordering, and I am pleased.

Petrale Sole Sautéed in Herb Butter Sauce
Adapted from a recipe served at Paul Martin’s American Grill.
1-1/2 pounds petrale sole fillets (4 to 6 fillets, depending on size)
Salt, to taste
3 tbsp minced shallots
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tbsp cold, unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
Fresh thyme or basil leaves
Fresh chives, minced
Lemon wedges (Meyer lemons preferred)
- Pat the sole fillets dry with paper towels. Salt lightly on both sides.
- Heat oil in a large, non-stick skillet on medium-high heat. Add fish to pan and brown lightly on both sides. (Fish is cooked when it flakes easily and is no longer translucent; about 3 minutes per side; do not overcook). Place the fully cooked fillets on a warm plate.
- Add shallots to pan and sauté until soft. Add white wine to "deglaze” the pan, and use a spatula to loosen up any browned shots, chives, and herbs sticking to the bottom of the pan. Add butter and swirl gently to make a sauce. Add herbs, and squeeze a little lemon juice into the sauce. Spoon over the sole.
- Serve immediately.
- Keep frozen at or below 0° F (-18° C).
- Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain its quality for at least six to 12 months.
- Shellfish and lean white fish (sole, halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish).
- NOTE: Seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.
- Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging.
- For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible.
- Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture package).
- Prior to cooking, do not allow fish to reach temperatures above 38 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius).
Cooking and serving tips
- Rinse fish quickly in cold, clean water.
- Cook in a medium-hot lightly oiled pan, under a broiler, or on the grill for 7-8 minutes, until only the very center is still translucent.
- Remove fish from heat and let it “self-cook” another two to three minutes, until just cooked through to center before serving.
- NOTE: It is perfectly safe and healthful to serve our fish raw or partly cooked, because flash-freezing has rendered it 100% sushi-safe.
- Enliven your fish entree with seasonings such as Vital Choice Organic Salmon Marinade Mix or other herb-spice blends.
- Add the seasonings of your choice to a little olive oil and marinate the fish, refrigerated, for 30-60 minutes or overnight. Or, simply mist fish lightly with olive oil or macadamia nut oil and dust with seasonings before cooking.
