Profile image
The "Baja Halibut" group are actually Flounders that are present in Baja California and include both the California Flounder (Paralichthys californicus, pictured to the right) and the Cortez Halibut (Parlichthys aestuarius). The California flounder is a large-toothed, native to the waters of the Pacific Coast of North America from the Quillayute River in Washington to Magdalena Bay in Baja California. The Cortez halibut is similar to the California flounder but with a broader body and more fin rays. Typically Baja Halibuts weighs 6 to 50 pounds (3 to 23 kg). Baja Halibut is prized for its fine texture and delicate flavor. Both are excellent as sashimi, baked, broiled, fried, sauteed, and even poached. The meat is light, delicate, flavorful, and mild.
