Celebrating Halibut Season at Coast Restaurant

BC Halibut season is in full swing, a couple of days ago, I visited Coast Restaurant where Chef Pedro Gonzalez prepared a couple of his new Ocean Wise Halibut dishes for me to taste.

Each of the Halibut creations were unique and very different in taste, appearance and ingredients but each celebrated the bounty of the fresh halibut that is now available in and around Vancouver.

Pacific halibut is prized for the delicate flavor and firm texture of its sparkling white, almost translucent flesh. The lean white meat of the Pacific halibut is high in protein and low in sodium, fat and calories, and with a minimum of bones, halibut as whole fish, fillets or portions adapts well to baking, broiling, frying, poaching or barbecuing.
