Greetings Seafood Lovers!

Halibut Season has finally arrived!
Though fished in both the North Pacific and Atlantic, our Halibut hails from Alaska.  Its name is thought to mean “holy flatfish” because it is coveted by many Catholics for consumption on holy days.  Like other Flounder, the Halibut has a migrating eye and “countershading”—its upper side is dark like the ocean floor, and its under belly is white like the light streaming through the water above.  The International Pacific Halibut Commission manages Halibut fishery and outlaws the capture of Halibut less than eight years of age (approximately 30 inches in length) to ensure sustainability.  Uncooked, white flesh of Halibut should be translucent white.  When cooked, the snow white meat loses its glossy appearance and is flaky and tender, though still firm.  Preferred cooking methods are broiling, grilling, and frying; avoid over seasoning, as it will overpower the fish’s naturally-mild, yet delicious taste.
Stop by our Market to take some home tonight!
