Can I use cod or flounder instead of halibut for this recipe??

Hi. You can most certainly substitute halibut with flounder as they both belong to the same family. You can also use sole as it is also a flatfish with similar texture. You can also use swordfish, fresh tuna,salmon, shark and catfish. However cod will most likely fall apart as it is a flaky fish.
