No matter where you live (even if it is somewhere deeply inland), seafood is a delicious branch of the culinary web that has so many variations. Shrimp, fish, and clams are just a few of the major categories of seafood, but fish branches off into so many different types of fish, it can be hard to pick a favorite. Haddock, salmon, halibut, and more are all especially tasty kinds of fish, but there is no denying that there is something special about halibut. This recipe shows exactly why halibut has become the favorite of so many. (The sour cream doesn’t hurt either.)
