Halibut is a mild, sweet, and lean fish. It has large flakes and a firm, yet tender texture. Available frozen year-round and fresh during season (mid-March through mid-November).
Cooking Tips & Recipes
Halibut’s thick flesh holds up to a variety of cooking methods, but can become dry if overcooked. Substitutions include Grouper, Snapper and large Cod fillets.
Halibut Fletch Tails vs. Halibut Fletch Portions
Halibut Fletch Tail Portions offer a thinner, tail-shaped portion of Halibut, whereas the Halibut Fletch Portions are cut from the body of the fish, providing a thicker, more uniform portion. The quality of the fish is identical, but if you don’t want a thicker piece of Halibut, buying tail portions will provide you with more fish per dollar.
