We've had Pacific halibut, this time we have sourced halibut from the Atlantic. Most Atlantic salmon is on the "avoid" list, but the US fishery is sustainably managed by New England Fishery Management Council’s Multispecies Fishery Management Plan.
You will likely not be able to tell much of a difference between the Pacific and Atlantic. Both have thick, meaty, and firm flesh, and a sweet and rich flavor. Halibut is a versatile fish and responds well to grilling, roasting, baking, and broiling.
Halibut is among the largest fish in the sea—it is certainly the largest flat fish. Its usual size ranges from 20 to 40 pounds, but it can grow to 8 feet long.
Moderate mercury level. Kosher.
1 lb. for $28.00
