Almond Crusted Halibut
Easy, full of flavor, and incredibly delicious, this Almond Crusted Halibut is the perfect anytime meal!
Sizzlefish Halibut is wild-caught in the pristine waters of Southeast Alaska, off Baranof Island, and size-selected to yield perfectly tender, flaky fillet servings for you to prepare at home. This light eating fish is an elegant treat and one of the highest-value seafood items. Alaska Halibut is also a naturally lean fish that cooks up white, flaky, and loaded with protein. Our halibut is also packed with vitamins and minerals such as phosphorus, vitamins B6 & B12, magnesium, Niacin, iron, zinc, vitamin A and Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help to reduce the risk of irregular heartbeat, lower triglyceride levels and slow plaque growth in arteries, making this meal an incredibly healthy choice.
