HOW TO BUY THE BEST HALIBUT
It is important to have healthy, high-quality fish in your diet at least 2-3 times per week at
- HALIBUT TASTE – This is a mild-tasting white fish. It is sold whole, as fillets or as steaks.
- ORIGIN – Alaska produces about 80 percent of Pacific halibut, and peak season runs from April through October – this is something to note because it affects the quality and length of time frozen for the fish.
- WHAT TO LOOK FOR – When looking at the grocery store, you want to see white, glossy meat. Avoid dull, yellow or grayish cuts that seem dried out.

What You Need:
- 2, 4 oz. halibut filets, skin removed
