Petrale sole, which is actually a flounder, was given its name for marketing purposes. It is a right-eyed flat fish that lives on the sandy or muddy ocean floor, off the Pacific coast. The fishery is managed by the Pacific Coast Groundfish Collective.
Chefs consider petrale sole to be the best of the West Coast flounders, because of its mild flavor and delicate flesh. It can be prepared almost any way: sautéed, baked, broiled. Seafood Watch rates it a "Best Choice." Low mercury level. Kosher.
