Peppered Petrale Sole With Mushrooms and Lavender

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

Most any mild white fish can be substituted for the sole: cod, orange roughy, tilapia, haddock, Dover sole, etc. For this particular recipe I chose Oregon-caught petrale sole. Mmm, I think this would pair well with a simple baked potato or fresh pasta and perhaps a tossed salad or grilled/roasted corn on the cob, if you ask me. Oh, and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, s'il vous plait! Adapted from

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet on medium heat, sauté mushrooms and garlic in butter for 1 minute.
  2. Place fillets over mushrooms and sprinkle with the dried lavender (or my posted Lavender Rub), cracked black pepper (omit if using rub), and smoked paprika.
  3. Cover and cook over low-medium heat for 5-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, adding the tomato slices the last minute of cooking. (The petrale sole cooked a total of 6 1/2 minutes. fyi).
  4. Garnish each fillet with lemon slices, green onions (and/or chives) and a sprig of fresh lavender. Season with salt, to taste.

Finding the lavender was the hardest part! The recipe is easy to make and comes together quickly. I really enjoy fish, so enjoyed this as well. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT8.
