Halibut, with its mild taste that melts in your mouth like butter, is a fish that’s hard not to love. Coming down from the cold waters of Alaska, this fish has some unique characteristics that make it one of the most interesting fish you can eat. Let’s find out a little more about halibut.

When halibut are born, they have one eye on each side of their heads – just like any other type of fish. However, at around five weeks old, one eyes moves over to the other side, resulting in a fish with two eyes on one side.

This distinct characteristic forces the fish to swim on its side and eventually results in a flat oval-shaped body. Thanks to some neat camouflage, halibut are able to eat all manner of sea creatures from cod and rockfish to octopi and crabs.

Along with a unique appearance, halibut are also especially delicious. Fresh Alaskan halibut and local halibut can be found at San Marino Seafood’s restaurant day in, day out.

Characterized by a golden flake, halibut meat is pure white and tends to have a sweeter flavor than other fish. Its rigid shape also makes it a preferred fish for many chefs across the globe.

If you’d like to taste one of the giants of the ocean, head to San Marino Seafood for an in season treat like no other. With the likes of swordfish and fresh wild salmon on the menu too, you’re in for a fish-filled delight.
