    A few things I'd like to share: I know that some folks are going to comment that Halibut isn't exactly a "cheap" menu item, considering it runs about $25-30 a pound; However, we caught these halibut ourselves. When you create your menu, use what you have available to you in your particular area. When we lived in the Northeast, we frequently found great deals on Haddock, another rather expensive whitefish. Use what you have!
