Greenland Halibut is a large flatfish found in the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. It is caught in the open oceans around Greenland, Norway and eastern Canada. After it is caught, it is graded, sorted, headed/gutted and frozen directly within a matter of a few hours on board the ship. They are then sent to the factory to be cut and packed.

Greenland Halibut is a fatty fish with an Omega-3 content of around 15%, almost a similar level to Salmon. At the same time, it is also a good source of vitamin B6, vitamin D, phosphorus and selenium. Greenland Halibut provides a mild and creamy flavor with a hint of sweetness and umami.

One of the greatest advantages of Greenland Halibut is that it never goes dry. It is suitable for many cooking methods such as baked, steamed, fried, grilled or even smoked. However, due to the softness of the fish, when panfrying or grilling cook on the skin side down.
