The Instacart guide to halibut fillets
About halibut fillets
If you're looking to add more fish to your diet but aren't a big fan of fish, halibut is an excellent fish to try. Halibut lacks that strong fishy taste that many people dislike. It has a sweet, mild flavor, and the meat is white and firm. Halibut are large flatfish that swim on the bottom of the ocean. They're found in both the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans, but most halibut bought and sold in grocery stores in the U.S. is Pacific halibut.
Halibut is the largest flatfish in the sea and one of the biggest halibut ever recorded weighed in at over 500 pounds. However, the average halibut weighs between 30 and 50 pounds. This large size results in fillets that are perfect for feeding a crowd. One halibut typically yields about four fillets, which can be prepared in a variety of ways. For the freshest halibut, you'll want to look for it in the supermarket from May to early October, but you can also get it in March and April and as late as November in limited quantities.
Frozen halibut fillets may be available all year, and these can work well for many dishes. The only problem with buying your halibut fillets frozen is that they can dry out more easily than fresh halibut fillets when cooking them.
