"Halibut cheeks are, I think, the tastiest part of the fish. They are slightly sweeter with a lovely texture that is so easy to handle. It only takes twenty minutes start to finish to make. These are nice served with rice and simple steamed veggies. Depending on the size of the cheeks 4 make a nice size serving for two. For the best results you need a heavy well seasoned skillet."
