#347: Fresh halibut

The Ruthie B, a Nantucket dragger,
came in with this beauty:
  A 38 pound Atlantic halibut.

Halibut, like other flounder, have both eyes on top.
They lie on the bottom of the ocean;
thus the camouflage mottled top side,
and the pale eyeless bottom side.
How cool is that?

A 13 lb. fillet.
Come in quick, this won't last.
