For the week of October 23 – 28

This week we are featuring fresh Alaskan Halibut. The Pacific halibut is the world’s largest flatfish. Halibut are often boiled, deep-fried or grilled while fresh. Smoking is more difficult with halibut meat than it is with salmon, due to its ultra-low-fat content. Eaten fresh, the meat has a clean taste and requires little seasoning. Halibut is noted for its dense and firm texture. How would you like to see us prepare your fresh halibut this week? Let us know by emailing ristosplace@gmail.com.
