First of the Season Fresh, Wild & Local Halibut – In Stores Today!
Our first batch of fresh, local halibut is delivered to our stores today! Just off the coast of Bellingham, Washington, in the breathtaking archipelago known as the San Juan Islands, our wild halibut is caught then delivered fresh to your local Haggen seafood counter. Thanks to our partnership with the Lummi Nation fishermen who have been fishing the local waters for generations, we’re able to offer our freshest halibut of the season.
Halibut, known for its delicate, sweet flavor and snow-white, firm flaky meat, is very versatile—try it baked, broiled, pan-fried, poached or grilled! Stop by our seafood counter to pick up some of this season’s very freshest fish—but hurry, this local fish is only available for a short time.
Grilled Halibut with Meyer Lemon Herbal Tea
2 halibut fillets
2 Tbsp olive oil or 2 Tbsp butter
Salt and pepper to taste
6 grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
4 tsp Stash Tea Meyer Lemon Herbal Tea
Slice of lemon
Preheat grill to 350°. Cut 2 18”×18” pieces of heavy-duty tinfoil and lightly coat with olive oil or butter. Lay one fillet in the center of each piece of foil. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, paprika, thyme and lemon juice. Then divide the grapes, breadcrumbs and Stash Meyer Lemon tea over the top of each fish and garnish with a slice of lemon. If you want to add more vegetables, place those in a pile on the foil first, then lay the fish on top.
Make the packet by folding over two opposite sides of the foil, then roll up the other two sides to seal. Don’t press the packet flat; leave room at the top to vent.
Place the foil packets on the grill for about 12 minutes, depending on the size of the fillets. You can open one slightly to see if it is cooked.
