One of my very favorite types of fish is halibut, and I absolutely love grilling or sauteeing thick halibut steaks. It used to be no problem locating them in any of the local grocery stores here in Phoenix, but in the past two years it has become literally impossible to find them. Whenever I ask the produce managers, they all give me this blank stare and say “I don’t know” when I ask what happened to the halibut steaks.
Now I am fully aware that predatory fish (such as halibut) are higher in mercury than prey fish, and that there has been increased concern about this. But I can find frozen halibut “strips” (for want of a better term to describe them), and I assume those are not mercury-free. I want my beloved monster-sized halibut steaks! Anyone have a clue about where they may have gone?
