Cortez Halibut – a delicious flat fish from Mexico.
The Cortez Halibut yields firm fillets with a mild, delicious flavor.
Alternatives include Pacific Halibut, Atlantic Halibut, Dover or Petrale sole.
For Your Menu
Like Pacific Halibut, Cortez Halibut is a very versatile fish. It tends to be a bit on the leaner side, so although it works with a variety of cooking applications, be careful not to overcook or it may dry out.
For Your Waitstaff
Celebrate this delicious fish and pair it with a fantastic white wine!
For Your Retail Display
A great option for customers looking for a milder fish to grill – Cortez Halibut is nice and firm, but not as meaty as other grilling favorites.
