Halibut is a white flaky fish sustainably caught in the Northern Atlantic. The flavor profile includes a mild taste that has a hint of sweetness. The texture is on the dense and firmer side sitting between the consistency of haddock and swordfish. From a health perspective, Halibut is high in protein, rich in Omega 3s, and low in saturated fat. Halibut is very versatile and pairs well with many different flavor profiles and sides such as pesto, lemon & rosemary, and capers & olives.
