Coconut Petrole Sole with Cucumber Kiwi Salsa

Coconut Petrole Sole with Cucumber Kiwi Salsa

There were many years that I didn’t eat beef or pork.  I mostly ate chicken and fish for my protein sources which was easy when I was at home cooking for myself.  When I went other places, it got harder.  Especially with my family since they are all big meat eaters.  After several Christmas’ going to my grandparents and eating only the salad while everyone else ate prime rib, my grandma cooked up something else for me.  Nothing special, just some fish and zucchini but ever since then I’ve LOVED this particular kind of fish.   For one because it tastes great and for two it will always remind me of the special meal she would make me every year until she passed.


Petrole Sole is nice and light, firm and cooks very quickly.  It’s very versatile and goes well in several dishes.


This particular recipe is one that is a family favorite.  Lightly dusted with coconut flakes then fried in coconut oil and topped with a fresh, zesty salsa.  Perfect for a quick weeknight meal!
