Great ingredients make for great meals. Whenever you can, use the highest quality supplies for your recipes. The flavor difference will always come through in your finished dish.
If there is an ingredient that you are not familiar with, check our Ingredient section. There are pages and pages of information about the ingredients used in my recipes.
Halibut is in the same flat fish family as flounder but that is where the resemblance ends. It is a larger, fleshy fish that can actually weigh up to 1000 lbs. Average size for halibut is about 50 to 100 lbs, however. It is a prized sport fish in the cold waters of the North Atlantic and North Pacific.
I like this fish because it has a clean, white fish flavor and is very meaty. It is especially good pan roasted and is amazingly low in fat, with a high percentage of Omega-3 fats.

There is essentially no Vitamin K in halibut. There are a great deal of fats in halibut at almost 2 of the grams of fat being in Omega 3 fats.
