FRESH Line-Caught Halibut Cheeks
What portion of the Halibut do Alaskan Fishermen consider the best part?
Believe it or not, those guys overwhelmingly prefer the cheeks.
Cheeks! Do Halibut even have cheeks?
Well, we know they have heads, and on each side of their head, just below the eyes, are cheeks.
The cheeks of cows, pig and lamb have long been a culinary delicacy, so why not the cheeks of a Halibut? Halibut cheeks are prized for their delicate sweet flavor, snow-white color and firm flaky meat.
Halibut cheeks will vary in size (depending on the fish) from the size of a half-dollar to as big as a hockey puck.
Whether pan sautéed, simply grilled or baked, Halibut Cheeks are something you rarely see even in fancy Restaurants (See our recipe below for “Oven Fried” Cornflake Crusted Alaskan Halibut Cheeks).
Relish the delicate sweet flavor and flaky texture of FRESH Alaskan Halibut Cheeks.
