Halibut steaks or Flatfish Halibut come from the icy, brisk currents of the North Pacific Ocean considered it’s native habitat. The clear waters attribute to the delicately moderate flavor of this whitefish. Longer, thicker and heavier than other Flatfish, the firmness of its flaky texture adapts well to all cooking methods and most flavor accents. An excellent source of protein and minerals, Halibut is low in sodium, fat and calories. The quality of Halibut’s firm texture and premium flavor clearly makes Halibut a premium choice in seafood.
