Dear %%user-name%%,

Happy Holidays and Welcome to our Third Annual Holiday Seafood Medley! We created this session in 2015 to provide our Members with a variety of fresh and local seafood that is in season for the month of December!

Your Premier Fish for this Session is Atlantic Halibut. Halibut, a large flounder, is one of the largest fish found in the Gulf of Maine. Only swordfish, tuna and some sharks surpass the halibut in size! And although it was formerly overfished, quota in our region is now highly restricted, which makes it a highly sought after and premium species for our Holiday Medley!

We have just three boats fishing in NH this week and none were lucky enough to land a halibut as of today (like the one pictured below, caught on the NH boat, F/V Heidi & Elisabeth earlier this year). So, we have outsourced from the F/V Olympia out of Boston for the beginning of the week and hope to get a NH boat Halibut later this week!

COOKING HALIBUT: Cook Halibut as you would flounder, 10 minutes an inch, the cardinal rule for cooking fish. Here are some great flounder recipes to choose from on our Pinterest page: https://www.pinterest.com/nhcsf/flounder/

HOLDS THIS SESSION: You can hold for any week you don't like the offering in this session and double up on another week! Holds must be in by SUNDAY, 9PM the week before your share is delivered. You can do the holds here.

ADD-ONS THIS SESSION: We will have Additional Add-ons available each week of this Session! Get your extra Lobsters, Oysters and Scallops for those weeks here! These also need to be in by Sunday, 9pm the week before you delivery!

Lobsters are next week! Each share consists of 3-chix lobsters and you can order extra if you would like.

Thanks for making it Seafood for the Holidays and to continue our support for our NH Fishing Industries! Enjoy this fantastic fish!

Happiest of Holidays,

Andrea Tomlinson
