"I was given a pound of Pickeral cheeks by a lovely generous friend. This is like being given gold - we simply cannot buy them here. Often the cheeks are dipped in egg, crackeer crumb and fried or floured and deep fried. I decided to fry them with garlic infused butter. They were wonderful. Don't be afraid of the garlic in fact add more if you wish."
