$3.99/lb Petrale sole @ Frank's Fish Mkt in Salinas

Melanie Wong | Aug 9, 200808:53 PM     3

Leading up to last night's opening ceremonies in Beijing and to amplify the good luck of 8/8/08, we cooked a whole fish for dinner. Frank's Fish Market in Salinas often has supremely fresh petrale sole and other local fish. Frank lets me step into the cold room to select from everything he has in stock. Petrale was $3.99/lb and red rock cod (also called "red snapper" but not true snapper) was $4.99/lb. Steamed with ginger and scallions, the Petrale was lovely and light.
