Fresh and Wild Yakutat Halibut - Ships Week of May 20th
How to store your Fresh Alaskan Halibut
Your fresh fillet can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Upon arrival please rinse the fillets in cold water, pat dry and refrigerate. The fresh fillet can be frozen & will keep in the freezer for approximately 30 days; once thawed it should be cooked and used within 1-2 days. We recommend after rinsing the fillets and patting dry, to wrap in a plastic wrap and then in a freezer bag before freezing.
How to prepare your Fresh Alaskan Halibut
Regardless of how you like to cook your fillet (bake, broil, grill sauté, or poach), we believe the key to success is to SLOW DOWN! Slow cooking locks in the natural juices for a more succulent flavor. When the flesh turns from translucent to just about completely opaque & flakes easily with a fork, it is done.
BAKED: Pre-heat oven to 275°F. Place fillet on a cookie sheet brushed with olive oil and bake skin side down for approximately 15-18 minutes. Do not flip fillet.
GRILLED: Brush grill with olive oil PRIOR to heating. Once the grill is medium-hot (you should be able to hold your hand 6 inches above the grill for 5 seconds), brush the top of each fillet with olive oil and place on the grill. Season with salt and pepper. Grill fillet until the sides begin to turn opaque. Flip once and continue grilling until fully cooked.
BROILED: Place fillet on a broiler pan brushed with olive oil on oven’s middle rack. Broil about 10 minutes or so, though keep watching to avoid overcooking. Do not flip fillet.
Some Things You Should Know

|Ingredients: Wild Halibut|
4 thick-cut halibut fillets
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt & peppper to taste
For the Butter Sauce:
1 cup white wine
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp heavy cream
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp freshly ground white pepper
1/4 cup shallots, chopped finely
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks sweet cream butter, unsalted
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
To make the sauce, place wine, water, shallots, vinegar, salt and pepper in a sauce pan over medium to high heat. Bring to a boil to reduce it about 1/3 cup. Transfer to a food processor bowl to puree. Once pureed, transfer back to the sauce pan and add the cream.
Turn the heat to low, and add butter little by little, slowly whisking with a wire whisk after each addition (this should take about 3 to 4 minutes to add all the butter). Beat steadily, the sauce should never boil. Add lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm until ready to serve.
When ready to cook, preheat your grill to 375 degrees. Add olive oil to a dutch oven and place inside the grill to preheat. Season halibut with salt and pepper and place inside the Dutch oven. Cook approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side, until internal tempature reaches 130 degrees F and fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Serve halibut with butter sauce. Enjoy.

We have worked with our friends in Alaska to bring you this wild, Fresh Halibut from Yakutat—perfect for your Memorial Day BBQ and Picnics.
The pristine waters of the Gulf of Alaska, by this remote fishing area, are home to Wild Halibut with a firm texture and especially rich flavors. Yakutat, Alaska is located in the gulf of Alaska and is the epicenter of the world’s most pristine halibut, which live in the cleanest waters known to man. Yakutat is a tiny village, so remote it can only be accessed by plane or boat. There are no roads in or out and no year-round ferry service. The native Tlingit people have thrived for many centuries, dependent on their relationship with the sea, which provides their seafood bounty and harvest.
Fresh Halibut is prized for its sweet, delicate flavor, perfectly firm texture and pure snow-white flesh. This fresh Halibut will hold its shape and texture whether grilled or baked and its flavor works equally well with bold sauces or a simple spritz of lemon. When you enjoy the pure, delicate, snowy-white meat of this delicacy, fresh from such a extraordinary source, you will experience halibut in a way few others ever do.
