The mild, sweet taste of halibut is a family favorite for its versatility and ease to prepare, holding up beautifully to just about any cooking method you choose. It has a thicker, firmer texture as compared to cod and it's delicious in fish tacos!
It’s important to open and inspect your shipment as soon as you can after it arrives on your doorstep.Because it is flash-frozen at sea at the peak of its freshness, frozen halibut is a perfect, protein-packed, low-fat go-to you can treat yourself and your family to year-round.While there are a number of safe ways to thaw frozen fish, by far, the best approach to preserve its flavor and consistency is to thaw it for 18-24 hours in the refrigerator. Simply remove the halibut from its packaging and put it onto a plate or shallow pan to catch any liquid. Refrigerate at least 8-10 hours (preferably overnight) before you plan to cook it.Tip! Like Atlantic cod, halibut can be cooked from frozen.

amazingI have always seeing halibut done on cooking shows and what not I’m not a big fish person. Typically I love scallops, shrimps OK, love sole and flounder And lobster. But I was so curious I decided to give halibut A try. It was fresh it was amazing. I just seared it in a pan and made a Lemon Beurblanc. There were three other people here who have never had halibut. They absolutely loved it. Sorry waited so long to try. Your seafood is amazing it’s fresh it’s well packed it’s delivered quickly I’m a total fan!
FabulousThis was fantastic. For the price it is probably the best value of your fish. One can't get this quality in a restaurant at the price. Great tasting. Great price.
Absolutely delicious.Absolutely delicious and even better sauteed simply in butter.
WonderfulI ordered this not sure what I was getting. The halibut surpassed my expectations. It is sweet tasting, not fishy, and I tried pan searing it and I will order again.
