Whilst tackling an entire halibut may not be in the standard kitchen repertoire of many of us, it’s all in a day’s work for Chef Kristin Donovan of Leslieville’s Hooked, where they go through around five whole fish in any given week.
Kristin makes it look easy, but it is obviously a much tricker process than she would have us believe, requiring a sharp blade, a steady hand, and an eye for the natural contours of the flat fish on the slab.
