Our garlic butter herb scallop recipe last week was delicious, and we love garlic (who doesn’t?), so this week we’re elevating our tastebuds and bringing you a recipe that not only has garlic, but parmesan as well! Double delicious!
Pacific Halibut are the largest flatfish found on the continental shelf, from California to the Bering Sea. Halibut have flat, diamond-shaped bodies, typically from 10 to 50 pounds – but they can weigh up to 500 pounds and grow to eight feet long. The majority of halibut are caught in Alaskan waters from mid-March to mid-November. These halibuts are hook and line caught.
At Newman’s, we sell a delicious Dayboat Halibut Fillet that is caught and sent to us within 24 hours! It’s absolutely perfect for this recipe, which can be ready to eat in as little as 13 minutes!
Halibut is highly regarded for its delicate sweetness, pale colour, and firm flaky meat. It is a great source of protein and minerals and also is low in sodium, fat, and calories. Halibut is a delicious and sustainable fish option.
Halibut pairs well with any dry white wine. According to WinePros, Chardonnay is the optimal wine partner with halibut because Chardonnay exhibits both creaminess and crispness, as well as vivid citrus and stone fruit aromas, making it ideal for pairing with a lean fish such as halibut. Sauvignon Blanc is another excellent wine to pair with halibut because of it’s citrus and herbaceous aromas, as well as wines such as Viognier or Pinot Noir, as these wines enhance the taste profile of halibut.
