- Our Wild Alaska Pacific Halibut is loved and preferred by most when it comes to choosing a white fish. Known for it’s delicate somewhat sweet flesh. Firm, yet tender with just enough flake and moisture to make for a superb meal. Divine in a multitude of preparations. Some of our favorites include: pecan crusted and baked in the oven, gently sautéed and lightly browned with grass fed butter in a cast iron skillet or poached and served with hollandaise and broiled asparagus. Often recommended for the grill or steamer as well.
- The following information is taken from the State of Alaska Dept of Fish & Game website
Pacific halibut are the largest flatfish in Family Pleuronectidae. Halibut and other flatfish are flattened laterally, and swim sideways, with one side facing down and the other facing up. The upper side is typically gray to brown, or nearly black, with mottling and numerous spots to blend in with a sandy or muddy bottom. The underside is typically white. Virtually all halibut are right-eyed, meaning both eyes are found on the upper, dark side of the body. Left-eyed halibut are rare; one report suggested a ratio of about 1 in 20,000. In these fish, the eyes and dark pigment are on the left side of the body, and the fish swims with the right (white) side facing down. The dorsal fin is continuous from near the eyes to the base of the tail, and the anal fin extends from just behind the anus to the same point on the other side. The mouth extends to the middle of the lower eye or beyond, and is nearly symmetrical. The scales are quite small and buried in the skin, making the skin appear smooth. The tail is broad, symmetrical, and lacks a distinct fork. The lateral line is strongly arched over the pectoral fin. The maximum reported size is over 8 feet in length and over 500 pounds.
