Once you've had halibut for the first time, we can guarantee this fish will make regular appearances on your dinner plate. Aside from it being lean, mild in flavor, sweet tasting, and absolutely scrumptious - halibut is also packed with omega-3 fatty acids, niacin, and magnesium. And these nutrients are known to contribute to a heart healthy diet.
So what is halibut? Pacific Halibut is the largest flat-fish in the ocean, and has been known to grow even longer than humans are tall. At Organic Ocean, our pacific halibut is caught by longline which is the same method we catch our wild sablefish. Our pacific halibut comes from one of the best managed fisheries in the world through a joint management plan with Canada and the United States ensuring you’re getting the most sustainable and also the best tasting halibut we have to offer.
Firm with big flakes, halibut is so versatile as it can be prepared in many different ways, this includes steaming, poaching, baking, broiling, grilling, and sautéeing. Because halibut is lean, it doesn't take long to cook and is ready when the flesh is white and still glistens with moisture.
Love Organic Ocean. Great quality and service. I wanted add that I use the fantastic high quality packaging to insulate my cold storage veggies in a room that varies in temp- sometimes too cold and sometimes too warm. It works just great to regulate the temp in the cold box. I use it in the car in the summer to transport cold groceries home in the heat. I also use it to insulate my cat's bed area when heat goes down at night. She's older with arthritis and it makes such a difference alongside a hot water bottle or heat sac.
Super happy and excited when I place an order. Easy website to manage. Great fish. I bought these to go with the fish batter sold by this company. Nice flavour, not fishy like other companies. This fish is sealed in freshness. I have bought twice now and will continue to use this company for my fish fillets needs.
Hi Eilene, thanks so much for your kind review, we're glad you had some lovely battered halibut, feel free to share photos of your fish masterpieces next time. ;)
Sent earlier email commending Organic Ocean for great quality and service. Comment however that the packaging is amazing and must be expensive - so question is there a way it can be returned for re-use instead of tearing up for re-cycling? keep up the great work **** Peel
Hi Dick, We got your email and thanks so much for all the kind words, we agree it's a shame that recycling isn't easier - we are always dreaming up ways to reduce our footprint and will be in touch if we drum up new methods to recycle. However please be aware all of our packaging meets the highest standard of sustainability and is created with already recycled content. Thanks for supporting Organic Ocean!
This is restaurant quality halibut - snow white and no fishy smell at all!
