Halibut Fish Taco

This meal is the opposite of what I think of when I think of fish tacos. These are light. Fresh tasting. Clean. Flavorful. These were so good that my husband and I were scraping the bits from the bottom of the pan. These fish tacos are going to be a staple in this house from now on. I made them about two weeks ago and honestly, I cannot wait to make them again.

Halibut Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Halibut Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.
