Bleu Waldorf Petrale Sole with Apple, Celery, Walnut
Wishing You a Sweet New Year
My Rosh Hashanah main dish was inspired by the classic Waldorf Salad, a combination of apples, celery, walnuts, and mayonnaise. The salad was first created in the late 1800s at the Waldorf Hotel in New York City. This modern twist uses the mayonnaise as sauce for the fish and includes bleu cheese for a punch of flavor.
To observe Rosh Hashanah, symbolic foods such as honey, apples, and carrots are served. They represent blessings, abundance, and the hope for a sweet year ahead. Fish is a part of the Rosh Hashanah meal, for it is an ancient symbol of fertility and prosperity and also represents knowledge since its eyes are always open. As we reflect on our lives, values, and relationships – the festive symbolic meal is an integral component of the Rosh Hashanah celebration.
Bleu Waldorf Petrale Sole Recipe
Season petrale sole fillets with salt and pepper. Coat with flour, shaking off the excess.
Sauté fish in olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat until golden brown, flip and cook the other side.
Cut apple into matchsticks. Slice celery very thin on the bias. Toss together with a generous amount of lemon juice.
Carrots represent our hope that we increase our good deeds. They are served on the side and topped here with butter and honey, to symbolize the wish for sweetness in the coming year.
Using the back of a spoon, swirl mayonnaise onto the plate. Place fish in the center. Top the fish with apple-celery mixture, then sprinkle with toasted chopped walnuts and crumbled bleu cheese. Garnish with parsley and celery leaves.
