Halibut cheeks are one of those delicacies that could just pass you by. If you try them, you will love them. This simple recipe, brings out the delicious flavour and texture of the halibut cheeks, by pan-searing them and drizzling them with a tangy, zesty orange sauce just before serving.
You may need to place a special order with your local fishmonger/fish department for these.
Wow! Tasty,quick and easy. No cilantro at home, so used italian parsley. Make sure fish are very dry before going in the pan - extra moisture adds to the time to thicken the sauce and leads to leathery fish. Well, as leathery as halibut cheeks can get. - 25 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is an outstanding recipe! I added a tsp of orange zest and an extra Tbs of fresh squeezed OJ and it was dynamite! Served with black rice drizzled with sesame oil and snap peas, a new favorite. Thanks! - 01 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
