Best Prices on Halibut west of 128

Love halibut, it is one of favorite fish. However, our area fish shop has it for 19.99/pound, which is too steep for my budget. Do any of the major grocery chains carry it? I've very rarely seen it at Shaws and never at Stop and Shop.

  1. Atlantic Halibut is scarce and Pacific doesn't get shipped here much so the price will be high. I'd check with Capt.Mardens or Whole Foods and eat a smaller piece.

    1. Costco has it for about $12-14 per pound.

        Hi Treb, is that fresh or frozen (or previously frozen)?

          Most fish is previously frozen, actually flash frozen at sea, even sushi grade! The product I've seen was not frozen but, I don't remember seeing if it was previously frozen. I'll check this week. I've bought it quite a lot over the years, always great, real nice thick fillets.

            Thanks, this is very helpful!

      2. Thank you for the explanation, now I see why it is expensive and hard to find. We don't have a Costco membership, so I'll have to see how much it costs.

        1. Trader Joe's sells frozen random weight (I think around $10/#) and frozen battered fillets.
