To say the least: Fish is plentiful in Alaska.
A fish dish finds its way into the meal planning of our household often.
My favorite? Halibut.Tip:
For those fortunate enough to fish halibut, and eat it fresh, right out of the ocean;
a halibut 100 pounds, or less, is a keeper;
anything over that, consider it a trophy but, also consider letting it go.
Bigger doesn't always
equate to better; at 60 pounds or less, halibut tastes best!
