Halibut

Jennifer Caryn Brand Nutrition, Halibut

My neighbor goes fishing often and brought this halibut steak over for me. You can see it here swimming in a sea of avocado oil just before I turned the heat on. After it was cooked, I added it to a salad of kale, spinach, radicchio, and parmesan, dressed with fresh squeezed lime and more avocado oil (it was DEVINE).

Halibut is a lean and meaty white fish. It's loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which are anti-inflammatory and excellent for heart and brain health.

It contains B vitamins (energy production), and minerals like magnesium (cofactor for more than 300 enzymes), potassium (helps regulate heart rate and blood pressure), and selenium (cofactor for detoxification enzymes).

Halibut (and other fish) is also a great protein source.

Halibut can contain high levels of mercury, so it is definitely not a fish to eat regularly. To learn more about safety when it comes to eating fish, click here, or contact me to discuss more!
