TASTE & FLAVOR: lean mild, sweet tasting white flesh, large flakes and a firm but tender texture because of its leanness, this fish becomes dried-out if overcooked.
PREPARATION: My favorite is to grill, sauté and of course battered and fried Halibut & Chips! You can also bake, broil, steam and poach. Bake halibut on baking sheets in the oven at 400 to 450°F until halibut is just opaque and flesh flakes when cut with a fork, about 10 to 15 minutes. Bake with plenty of olive oil, butter, or even in a sauce to prevent it from drying out.
CAUGHT IN: Mexico
FISHING SEASON: Year Round
HOW IT COMES: All of our fish is fresh, never frozen and comes delivered in gallon ziplock bags.
STORING: If you choose to store your fish in the refrigerator we suggest consuming it within 3 days of delivery. If you do not plan on eating the fish within 3 days we suggest freezing it immediately after delivery to ensure freshness. Before freezing we suggest removing the fish from the bag and patting dry Then place it in a vacuum sealed bag or double saran wrapped and place in ziploc before freezing. To defrost run cool (not hot) water over the bag for 5-10 minutes or Defrosting in the refrigerator.
