Easy Wild Halibut
Halibut is a lean fish with mild, sweet-tasting white flesh, large flakes and a firm but tender texture. Due to its ultra-low fat content, this fish dry out if overcooked.
Ideally, go for an internal temp of about 125º-130º F. This leaves the fish tender and moist. Because it holds together very nicely, there are several ways to cook this fabulous fish. Family faves are grilled, sautéed or battered-and-fried halibut and chips! Not only does it taste spectacular, but it’s extremely good for you, boasting a high ratio of protein to fat. Furthermore, the miniscule amount of fat that exists in a fillet is Omega-3, a good form of fat that helps lower your risk of heart disease and promotes overall wellness.
This chef-inspired recipe not only allows this sumptuous fish to shine through, it’s quick and easy prep makes it ideal for a healthy after work dinner for two!
