Highly prized, Halibut’s meat is tender and flaky, yet firm enough to be easily grilled. It is also quite lean, making it a good choice for those looking to introduce healthier proteins to their diet.
These fillets are cut from Pacific halibut, which is both softer in texture and considered a far more sustainable choice than the Atlantic halibut popular in Europe.
