Let The Fresh Halibut Season Begin!
Call it luck of the Irish. I stopped in at the Pearl Street Whole Foods to pick up a fish to grill this evening, hoping halibut might becoming available around now, and today turns out to be the first day of the season for halibut, at least at the Pearl store. I came away with a stunningly lovely piece, as it should be for a price of $23.99 a pound (which by the way is a "sale" price, $5 off what their signage says they project to be the regular). If you find the price a bit rich for your blood (and I overheard several comments to that effect), you might at least get a chance to enjoy a taste, as they were sampling it when I was there about an hour ago.
