Sole Anyone??

So who has heard of Sole?? I feel like maybe I have been living under a rock…never heard of the stuff. I am not a fish eater, not a fan at all…however, I know how good this stuff is for me, so I am always willing to try to “learn” to like it. πŸ˜‰Β  Steven picked up some wild caught sole at Whole Foods last week, mainly because it was a white fish and it was cheap…we were willing to give it a shot. For those of you who may not know, the white fish tend to be less “fishy”, so they please the taste buds of someone like me a bit better. They are very mild, and from what I’ve had, quite delicate in texture as well.

And back to the sole. This stuff is GREAT! Finally a fish that I can enjoy that I don’t have to cover with tons of seasonings or choke down in a hurry! Even better, it cooks up quickly because the fillets are thinner than cod, halibut, and salmon. I imagine there is a million ways you could cook this fish, but so far I have only tried one…olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and parsley. Simple and satisfying! The flavor replaces the butter and garlic fish that I am more accustomed to quite wonderfully.

In case you want to know what these funny things look like. πŸ˜‰

Anyone who may be a bit bashful with fish should really give this stuff a try! Very affordable and very good! If I can learn to love fish, I am pretty sure even the toughest of critics can be converted. πŸ˜‰ I will be trying diligently to find other recipes with this awesome fish, and I will be sure to let you know as soon as I have something wonderful. πŸ™‚

Any of you ever tried sole? Have any good tips to share?


  1. Not real attractive fish at all! lol I can see why the filets would be thinner!

      I know, right! Steven and I both laughed pretty hard when we saw that…at least it tastes good! πŸ˜›

  2. I’m glad you found some fish that you like! The way that you cooked it sounds delicious.

      Me too! I was starting to get worried that the only stuff I would be able to stomach was the jerk salmon! lol
