One of my clients for whom I provide chef service, is suffering from a diagnosis of Lyme Disease and has been advised through his functional medicine doctor to follow the Paleo Ketogenic Diet. One of the main dishes that I recently prepared for him is lemon sole. Lemon sole is a very delicate thinly sliced white fish that has virtually no bones to deal with. It does not have a fishy odor and is considered a good protein choice on this particular diet.
It is quite easy to prepare. Some people like it dipped in a little coconut flour before sautéeing but it is also good just as is. Add about 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet. Add a teaspoon of both minced garlic and ginger and simmer until golden. Add the slices of fish. Salt and pepper it and squeeze a generous amount of lemon. Drizzle a little coconut aminos and that’s it! Since it is such a thin and delicate fish, it cooks up quickly. It will be done in about 3 minutes per side. Turn over, salt and pepper, add lemon. Drizzle a bit more coconut aminos.
This dish is appropriate for the following specialized dietary protocols: The Auto-Immune Paleo Diet, The Candida Elimination Diet, the GAPS Diet, the Low Histamine Diet and the Paleo Ketogenic Diet.
Note: For the Low FODMAPS Diet, leave out the garlic.
