The halibut, which is a flounder

June 27th, 2018 | main dishes

The name is misleading, because strictly speaking, the white halibut is a flounder, because he is right-eyed. His body is brown-black and white on the “blind side”, hence the name. It can become incredible four meters long. Ours was not that big…

White halibut is one of our favourite fish. It comes along fine-aromatic while low-fat and the preparation in the oven is very simple. A feast, which is superfast on the table. Promised.

Since my dearest captain always likes to bring home the very best vanilla from his travels, there is nothing better than refining a hollandaise with it.
