When it comes to fish, halibut is a great choice. At our Seattle Italian restaurant, we make use of quality Alaskan halibut for our halibut picatta, our cioppino, and more. This delicious white fish has a gentle, mild taste that pairs well with Italian-style dishes.
In addition to the benefits that you find in most seafood, including valuable omega-3 fatty acids and lean protein, halibut has a lot of impressive nutrients to offer. In particular, it is one of the best sources of magnesium, which facilitates the flow of blood through your body. It is also a strong source of vitamin B6, vitamin B12, potassium, selenium, niacin, and folic acid. A diet rich in this fish decreases your chances of heart disease, strokes, and certain types of cancer.
