Halibut: Main Image

Best to Buy

Look for halibut that smells fresh like the ocean and has clear eyes, clean red gills, moist scales, and firm white flesh.

Prep & Store

Remove packaging, rinse fish under cold water, and pat dry. Refrigerate covered with crushed ice and cling wrap for up to two days.

Tasty Tip

The secret to delicious halibut is to not overcook it. Halibut is done when the flesh becomes opaque but is still moist and easily pierced with a fork.

Nutrition Notes

Halibut is an excellent source of potassium, selenium, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12.
