Chinese Petrale Sole Recipe with Ginger and Garlic

Paleo Chinese Petrale Sole with ginger and garlic

Petrale sole is a delicious fish that’s pretty cheap (we bought 3 for around $15 at Costco).

There’s not much debate between the various diets that fish is super nutritious and healthy, and I happen to love all seafood, so we often cook fish in our house.

Petrale sole is a fish I’ve eaten at restaurants before, but I’ve never tried to cook it until now.

It was remarkably easy and tasty, and here’s how to cook it.

What Does Petrale Sole Look Like?

Petrale sole is a fish with white meat and whitish skin on one side and dark skin on the other side.

Note: if you’re cooking the whole fish, then watch out for the bones (they’re fairly easy to spot).

Alternative Ways To Cook Petrale Sole

Another common way to cook petrale sole within the Chinese community is to steam the whole fish with that same tamari sauce mixture (personally I find frying to be more flavorful).
