We have managed to get these boneless 170-200 gram halibut fillets. They are the best we have seen. Halibut can grow up to 1/2 ton and are the largest flat fish in the ocean.
Halibut is a delicious white-fleshed fish with a firm meaty texture. It is best prepared with plenty of liquid. Pan-fry it in melted butter and olive oil and baste regularly, or poach it in liquid to keep it moist. It needs to be cooked until the flesh has turned opaque and is just starting to flake.
Try a chilled glass of Sauvignon Blanc with Halibut particularly a fragrant wine from New Zealand or be adventurous a try a good Pinot Noir from New Zealand – delicious!
