Wild-caught in Newfoundland, this halibut from the folks at Afishionado Fishmongers is also Marine Stewardship Council Certified, which means it meets the international best practice for sustainable fishing. When it comes to the taste and texture of wild-caught halibut, it has a mild, slightly sweet flavour, and a firm texture. If you're just starting to try more seafood, this is a good place to start. Halibut meat contains nutrients that keep the heart healthy, such as selenium, magnesium, niacin, and omega-three fatty acids. It is also high in protein.
COOKING TIP: Halibut is delicious no matter how you choose to prepare it. It can be grilled, baked, pan-seared or battered and fried (make some classic fish and chips!). It holds up well to bolder flavours like pesto, but is also delicate enough for a lemon caper sauce. One of our favourite ways to enjoy it is pan-seared and topped with an avocado and mango salsa. Bonus: it looks as good as it tastes!
