Petrale Sole, California Sole, Jordan’s Flounder (Eopsetta jordani)
The King of Soles
Petrale Sole is a flatfish that is widely popular on the West Coast, particularly in California. The Los Angeles Times named this fish the King of Soles for its delicious slightly sweet flavor and fine textured flesh. There are many ways to prepare petrale, but our favorite preparation is lightly breaded and pan-fried with a squeeze of lemon and a touch of butter. You really cannot go wrong with this delicious, easy to cook fish.
Our petrale is caught locally, just off the west coast where our team of fisherman use bottom trawls to find the fish. It received an yellow raking from the respected Monterey Seafood Watch program because the stock levels are currently healthy but it is possible overfishing is occurring.
As a 100% transparent and sustainable seafood supplier, Royal Hawaiian was one of the first seafood processors in the country to collaborate with the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch program to ensure that we only sell products from fisheries that are responsibly harvested or aquacultured.
