My local market had fresh Halibut on sale for $8.99 lb, I haven't bought fresh Halibut for years because of the price being between $22 to $28lb. This is a 10lb piece that was as fresh as the day it was caught. It really hurt to freeze this, the taste was so fresh the Halibut was melt in your mouth good................

we bought a whole 25# fish and broke it down last fri. Man let me tell you what a difference. Melt in your mouth tenderness and buttery taste, really nothing compares in my book......chef BillyB thanks for the pics

Fryguy, I could not agree more, it was melt in your mouth perfection. I always think I have to over think a dish to make it a Chef quality meal, The Halibut was King in this case. I hope all is well at The CC, your coming into your busy season...............The Best....................ChefBillyB

One of the best fish in the sea. Very Versatile, almost mistake proof and you can do a lot of different peperations with if. Better then Sea Bass with half the bone waste.

That is one sexy fish.

I saw your pic of it cooked. What did you do with it?

My favorite way the last couple of years has been to sear off a nice thick 6oz filet with some olive oil, take it out of the

saute pan & finish it in the oven. While it cooks i add some kalamatas, diced tomatoes, frash diced rosemary & thyme &

a splash of white wine. Then i just spoon the sauce over it at service time. It's a nice accompaniment without taking away from

the fresh fish.
