Giveaway: Month Supply of Fresh Alaskan Halibut
Yeah, you read that correctly — a month’s supply of Alaskan halibut. How cool is that?
Thanks to Alaska Seafood, we’re not only giving away the halibut, but we’re also giving away the same amount of Alaskan black cod. So make sure you enter both giveaways.
Halibut is a fantastic fish to cook with — it’s firm, a little sweet and not too fishy. Think of homemade fish tacos, fish sandwiches, grilled or even simply seared — So easy.
We also love that it has been caught sustainably — It’s seasonably harvested and long-line caught. Here’s what Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch has to say:
“Most Pacific halibut are caught in Alaska where fishing for Pacific halibut is strictly limited to the bottom long lining method, which causes little habitat damage or bycatch.
The Pacific halibut fisheries of Alaska, British Columbia and Washington are certified as sustainable to the standard of the Marine Stewardship Council.”
We’re extra excited about this one and wish you the best of luck — Entries will be taken until May 13th, 2013. Limit one (1) entry per day per person.
