"Fabulous Halibut"Suzanne on 10/16/2020 11:06 AMRating:
Review: I have ordered the halibut on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The 4 oz. portion size would be adequate for most folks but the fish is always so fresh and delicious that I do crave the extra two ounces. Once you have eaten the halibut from Vital Choice you will never again buy it from local markets..

Review: Delicious fish. Excellent product.
"Our recent shipment of 12 pieces of halibut"Ralph H on 10/12/2020 9:54 AMRating:
Review: Our second order of Halibut was a shock with lots of brownish streaks that ran through the meat. Our first order had been all white and cooked up with juicy flavor. A sample cooking of the most recent was tasteless and course and dry. My wife thought it was old fish that did not measure up. You lived up to your promise of satisfaction and replaced our order of 12 6 oz pieces with less streaking. We plan to do the first taste test today. - We are happy for our Customer Service team took care of your recent issue and a replacement order was sent promptly. We hope you enjoy this shipment. Please reach out to us if you have any questions. Best!

"Fantastic Fish!"Trish Aquino on 5/15/2020 8:48 AMRating:
Review: I've been eating a vegan diet for several years but have been feeling I needed to add back more protein and decided to order some halibut from Vital Choice. It was fantastic! Served up with dark leafy greens and after my meal, I feel incredible! I am placing my second order now!
"Excellent"Margaret on 12/23/2019 7:19 PMRating:
Review: Just tried the halibut and it was excellent! Worth every penny!
"Yummy"Kris. D on 11/7/2019 6:27 PMRating:
Review: Ok . I’m feeling better about my ability to cook fish. I’ve bought store bought fish before and been so disappointed thinking it was just me. I cooked this Halibut on the grill using their rub and Wow. It was so good. Now....to try it on the other types of fish that I purchased. I’m confident that I will be just as impressed.
"Best fish ever!"natasha k on 10/5/2019 10:20 AMRating:
Review: I have histamine intolerance and can only eat flash frozen fresh caught fish. This is not only safe and healthy for me to eat but the most delicious halibut I’ve ever had. It’s also so convenient to have them in individual pieces. 6 ounces is the perfect size too! Wonderful company!
"Going downhill"Maureen D on 8/29/2019 3:15 PMRating:
Review: Very disappointed in recent months with Vital Choice. Just got my 6 piece Halibut & 3 pieces were tails with brown streaks all over & didn’t taste super fresh. I was told the 6 piece quantity of Halibut would not contain tails so that’s what I’ve been ordering. My last two orders contained half of them tails & not good tasting. Not sure if I will order again. - Thank you for sharing your feedback with us regarding this product. Our Customer Service Team will follow up with you today. Thank you!
"Never Disappointed"DeeDee Boyington on 8/10/2019 5:01 PMRating:
Review: Have made many recipes with the wild Halibut. Most recently made Lemon Lime Citrus Halibut with Mango Salsa. Absolutely delicious! Even though I live in Florida, I still order seafood from Vital Choice. I am addicted to their quality!
"Halibut"ELIANE ROSENBERG on 6/26/2019 1:49 PMRating:
Review: Have been buying from Vitalchoice for many years, always buy the salmon, cod and sable, occasionally I would buy the halibut but stopped doing so because the price went up.
Recently I got again the salmon and decided to give another try on halibut and pay the high price... well, very disappointed that they really sent me small pieces and noticed they cut one side on the edge what makes even smaller and Thinner. Will no longer buy halibut from them.
Not to say they were behind on my delivery day because of damage on shipping and they even didn't notify me.
Our Customer Service Team would like to reach out to you and discuss your order.

"Best Seafood"Steven M on 6/21/2019 4:45 PMRating:
Review: I just loved the taste and texture of the salmon filets. Best fish ever. Well worth the price.
"Excellent"Deb A on 6/10/2019 8:16 AMRating:
Review: We love the 6 oz. portions of Wild Alaskan Halibut. I usually prepare two portions and use leftovers in another dish during the week. The fish is always fresh and delicious.
My go to recipe is to spread Dijon mustart over the top of the filet then sprinkle panko breadcrumbs that have been mixed with olive oil, a minced garlic clove, and fresh herbs (usually thyme and parsley). Bake at 400F 10-15 minutes until topping is golden.
"Reviewer was wrong"Dana on 5/23/2019 7:20 AMRating:
Review: I came back to order more halibut and read some of the reviews. I was concerned that one reviewer said the halibut quality had gone down with lots of brown streaks... I went ahead and ordered anyways. The halibut I received was pure white, thick with no brown at all. It is very, very good and I will order again!
"OKAY"Suzanne Tedeschi on 4/18/2019 6:40 AMRating:
Review: I was only happy with the halibut my first couple of orders. Lately the halibut has had a lot of brown going all through it where it used to be a nice solid white. The brown parts taste disgusting. I feel the halibut hasn't been as firm either, much more watery, Definitely not happy with the last 2 orders I received. Halibut is too expensive to have to pick around the brown & I am left with barely anything to eat! Not sure I will order again.
We are sorry to hear your disappointment in the Halibut. Our Customer Service Team will reach out to you shortly to discuss your order.

"Too simple (wink)"Shu M on 10/23/2018 4:20 PMRating:
Review: Oh my, these are delishous! Thaw, rinse, dry, squirt of fresh lemon juice, salt pepper and butter .... bake 8-10 min at 400 degrees. Careful! Don’t overlook. I serve w jasmine rice and roasted organic baby Brussels sprouts coated w olive oil, garlic powder and Parmesan. Enjoy these subtle delicious flavors!
"Awesome!"Lynn D on 9/8/2018 9:20 AMRating:
Review: Even though it was 95 degrees out, my package of Halibut was hard as a rock still; packed with care with plenty of dry ice. The Vital Choice Halibut tastes as fresh as if it came right off the boat! It doesn't even compare to the Halibut bought in the fish market of my grocery store. Thank you!
"Great tasting !"Barb S on 9/6/2018 8:50 AMRating:
Review: This is wonderful grilled or broiled. Very flavorful —just make sure to not overcook it—as it can dry out quickly. But coked just the right amount it’s famtastic.

"MyHusband LOVES it"Delores C on 6/9/2018 5:19 AMRating:
Review: For 2 years I have been eating the great wild Salmon. My husband finally said he would try the Halibut.
Now he eats it at least once every week.
He loves the taste and the fact that it is always available in our freezer.
Great quality, fair pricing, delicious and convenient.....
"Halibut"Ellen on 5/28/2018 5:34 PMRating:
Review: Have been looking for a good source for Alaskan Halibut. The fish is perfect.
"Wonderful"Ed M on 5/27/2018 10:24 AMRating:
Review: This halibut is delicious. Lightly breaded with Panko and sauteed in EVOO, it tasted so good that I never used the lemon I had sliced for it. Also still very good cold or warmed up the next day.

second order, an am very pleased with the
Halibut so far!!!
"Great halibut"Barb S on 5/17/2018 4:21 AMRating:
Review: Great tasting fish--make on the grill or pan roast them. Very flavorful.
"Alaskan halibut"Trevor on 5/11/2018 5:27 PMRating:
Review: I ordered the Halibut due to my inability to tolerate fat very well, and as halibut is a pretty lean fish it works out very well for my system. Now, in regards to the quality of the fish itself. It's truly spectacular and as long as you cook the Halibut well you will be rewarded with a tasty piece of fish. It's certainly some of the best halibut I've ever had. I might not recommend this fish for beginner Cooks because if you don't do it right there's not a lot of forgiveness. Of course, the best way to learn is try so maybe go ahead and order it anyways!

"Love the halibut!"Ronald S on 5/10/2018 6:32 AMRating:
Review: Wild Alaskan Halibut has become a weekly tradition in our family! My wife has found many excellent ways to prepare it. I especially like no bones and skin.
"Wild Alaskan Halibut"Judith B on 5/5/2018 9:10 AMRating:
Review: Your recommendation that halibut should be cooked for 7-8 min seems too long to me. I cooked mine on a high fire for five min and it seemed a little dry. I’ll try a lower fire next time, but definitely will not cook for more than 5 min.
"Great Halibut"Carol on 5/4/2018 8:24 AMRating:
Review: The high quality, the flavor, the speed of delivery, the environmental packaging, it all adds up to the best fish. It's all I get. I always have Vital Choice fish in my freezer and use them weekly. Makes dinner so easy.

Review: The best Halibut I've had in a long time ~ thank you!
"NOT AS GOOD AS WE EXPECTED"Joanna K on 4/1/2018 12:48 PMRating:
Review: Maybe we are spoiled because we LOVE your sablefish, but we found the halibut to be tough, dry and very bland! I cooked it slowly and made sure it was not overcooked.
The portions seemed small, but I weighed them with my scale and they were accurate. Being 6.0 to 6.3#.
We liked the fact that they were skinless. We do not like skin on any fish, including salmon. It makes it taste way to fishy for us, and then I have to use a large amount of lemon juice.
Nothing like the halibut my mom used to make when I was young.
-Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry to hear your disappointment in this product. Our Customer Service Team will follow up with you regarding this order. Thank you, The Vital Choice Team

Review: Taste was out of this world
"Great Halibut"Moorea on 2/16/2018 6:14 AMRating:
Review: Prepared as “Halibut Alieska” was delicious, my only remark is about fish portions not being equal, I wanted 6oz and one of them was more like 4oz, difficult to even out but other than that it was perfect.

"Halibut"Robert F on 1/20/2018 3:42 AMRating:
Review: Vital, has by far the VERY best customer service.
"Halibut"John P on 1/19/2018 6:48 AMRating:
Review: Vital choice fish are flash frozen once they are line caught. In other words, unlike wild caught fish you can buy from places like Whole Foods for less than half the price per pound., Vital Choice fish do not linger unfrozen, subject to absorbing water and worse yet, losing most of their flavor within the first two hours of being caught.
You can still get amazingly delicious fish from deep off the Alaskan coast by small volume high unit cost businesses, like Vital Choice and maybe only Vital Choice. is it worth the extra cost? Once you taste Vital Choice’s halibut, salmon, scallops and other fish, you will conclude like myself that value is worth more than cost, much more. Bon appetite.
"Wild Alaskan Halibut"ELIZA R on 1/18/2018 6:13 AMRating:
Review: This is a good fish and the portions are just perfect.
"Delicious"Joyce B on 1/18/2018 5:17 AMRating:

Review: Delivery as promised, product packed perfectly and frozen. Fresh looking and I had some the next day after defrosting and it was delish
"The best I have bought"Judy L on 1/13/2018 2:42 AMRating:
Review: This halibut is the better than anything you can buy in the store. I bake it in the Nu'wave oven at 4 minutes per side and it comes out moist and flaky.
Purchasing from Vital Choice is always seamless, and the fish is superior to everything else! We love Vital Choice!
