Pacific Seafood Halibut Escabeche

Posted by on April 1, 2013

The first of the season  Alaskan halibut has arrived, and we are thrilled!  Considered the world’s premium whitefish, first of the season halibut are the best quality because the fat content of the fish is at its absolute peak. To celebrate the arrival of this delicacy from the icy north, we created an escabeche using our Pacific Seafood.  This simple preparation is a luscious showcase of some of  spring’s first fresh flavors.
