Characteristics

CharacteristicsThe Cortez Halibut yields firm fillets with a mild, delicious flavor.

Alternatives include Pacific Halibut, Atlantic Halibut, Dover or Petrale sole.

For Your Menu

MenuLike 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

Wait StaffCelebrate this delicious fish and pair it with a fantastic white wine!


For Your Retail Display

Retail 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.
