  1. Where do you buy your halibut? I think you are in Seattle and I’m wondering where you get your fish. I’ve looked at Costco and Trader Joes and can’t find it there. I’m a huge fan of your menus! I’m currently obsessed with the chicken tostadas.

    • Hi – i usually get wild, prev. frozen halibut at our local grocery store, Whole Foods or sometimes even Costco has it. It’s harder to find in the winter and so much better in the summer!
