Fish Facts: Atlantic Halibut is the largest and most commercially valuable fish in the Atlantic Ocean. This bottom feeder is found in abundance at depths of 200-500m and is also a part of the flounder family. When hatched, halibut have eyes on either side of their head and swim upright, after about 6 months the left eye migrates to the other side and the fish begins to swim sideways.
Taste/Cooking: Halibut has a delightfully meaty texture which is also flakey. Its’ flavour is mild with a hint of sweetness. Preferred cooking methods include grilling, poaching, deep frying, seared, steamed, or smoked. This fish would go well with our house made fresh herb mix, garlic & dill, and miso paste.
Sustainability: Recommended product of Oceanwise.
Vacuum packing can extend the shelf life as it reduces odor and texture changes that may cause fish to spoil. It also helps to prevent water loss and keeps the fish/shellfish from dying out.
Please note: When thawing frozen fish it is important to remove the fish from the vacuum sealed packaging.
