    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.

    "Not what I expected" Mary Langrall on 06/11/2021 03:59 Review: A bit dry and fishy in taste. Reminded me of tilapia which is not a favorite of mine. Hello Mary, Our Customer Service Team will be reaching out to your shortly to discuss your order. The Vital Choice Team

    "Sole" Hilda v on 04/02/2021 07:32 Review: This is the first time I have ordered this fish it was great ,certainly not disappointed

    "White Petrale Sole" Cheryl Brown on 03/26/2021 05:28 Review: I am on a restricted diet (no salt); although I must admit it’s not all the time, but this fish Allows for the absorption of seasons better than others. It is a very very mild fish so it takes on the flavors of added seasoning more to me than most any fish. The black cod (sable) is still my favorite, but I buy this when I want a light protein. It’s very light and mild. Vital choice please consider putting Haddock, snapper and swordfish on your menu. Thank you for the delicious other options.

  • Recipes

    Petrale Sole Sautéed in Herb Butter Sauce

    Adapted from a recipe served at Paul Martin’s American Grill.

    Serves 4

    1-1/2 pounds petrale sole fillets (4 to 6 fillets, depending on size)

    Salt, to taste

    2 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil

    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.
  • Serving/Care


    • 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.

    Thawing instructions

    • 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.
