Today we enjoyed yummy Petrale sole filets from Vital Choice Seafood. I love this brand since they fish in pristine waters and make sure the fish is toxin free! To learn more, my guide to sustainable seafood can be found here 🐟
I decided to give the filets a little Mediterranean twist and drizzled them with my favorite pesto tahini from Seeds of Collaboration 😍 they make the creamiest tahini and the added herbs give it Mediterranean vibes 🇬🇷
You can save 20% on your first order using my code cure.eated at checkout, or alternatively you can buy a different tahini and add in your own garlic and herbs. Thrive Market makes a yummy one as well!
To be transported to the Islands of Greece you need:
4-6 ounces of Petrale sole per person, this could be a few pieces depending on the size. The filets tend to be very large and flat and easily break apart 🐟
Ghee for frying 🧈
Salt and pepper 🧂
Fresh chopped chives 🌿
Tahini for drizzling 🤩
Begin by heating up a thin layer of ghee in a large pan. While that is melting, pat the filets dry and season each side with salt and pepper.
Place the filets in the molten ghee and fry for 1-2 minutes, then flip over and cook another 1-2 minutes on the other side. Since the fish is very thin, I recommend you supervise the cooking process closely to avoid a fry dish 😉
Remove from the pan, garnish with fresh herbs such as chives and drizzle with the tahini.
I like to serve these with mashed romanesco, baked artichoke bottoms and roasted lemon broccoli 🥦, recipes are coming so stay tuned 😎
