This flatfish has many alternatives within its own species. Simply use another sole, flounder, etc. in its place.
Flatfish dwell in oceans throughout the world. They are primarily harvested in the North and South Atlantic and the North and South Pacific.
Flatfish are harvested mostly by trawlers and are available year-round.
Sole has a mild and delicate flavor.
Sole is medium-firm with a small flake.
Because of their delicate taste, sole and flounder are well suited for elaborate presentations such as stuffing and saucing. They are best poached, steamed, sautéed, pan-fried, or deep-fried.
The flatfish should be carefully iced on-board the ships, preferably held in boxes or on shelves. They should be placed with dark side down to prevent discoloration of its lighter side.
Sole is appropriate in the casual dining, fine dining, hotel, and resort/club segments of the market.
