Description

Our halibut steaks come from fish raised on an award-winning fish farm on Gigha, an island on the west coast of Scotland. Unlike fillets, steaks are prepared on the bone, yielding extra flavour when cooked.

The firm, creamy and meaty flesh of the flat fish has long been prized by chefs and gourmets. Halibut is endangered in its native environment of the Atlantic, a disappointing fact that has led to the growth of farmed halibut.

Halibut fillets are excellent poached in fish stock or white wine or carefully pan-fried and served with subtle accompaniments that won’t overpower the delicate flavour of the fish.

Gigha Halibut, our supplier, was established in 2006 and began harvesting premium halibut a year later. The business has won several awards for its products and practices, including best food producer in the 2014 BBC Food and Farming Awards.

Storage

Halibut fillets are best eaten as fresh as possible. Keep refrigerated between 0˚C and 5˚C and consume within three days of delivery. If freezing, do so on the day of delivery and consume within two months. We recommend defrosting overnight in the fridge.

How We Package Your Fish

1. First we vacuum pack individual fish portions (if the fillets are small then we will pack them in pairs).
2. Each portion is then weighed and clearly labelled.
3. We add frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel, to a polystyrene box.
4. We pack your order so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.
5. We seal the box with packing tape and hand it to our courier, who will deliver it to you within 24 hours (or 48 hours if you live in the Scottish Highlands).
