Halibut is a member of the Flatfish family and is found in both the Atlantic and Pacific waters.

Halibut has firm white meat and a mild flavor and is an excellent source of the important antioxidant mineral selenium . This seafood delight also contains brain-boosting B vitamins (niacin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12) as well as provide a good source of the important minerals magnesium and potassium.
