    I am selling a kidney for some halibut cheeks. Never cooked them before. Need ideas...preferably pan fried. As much as I love smoked foods I want no other flavours in this dish.

    East , West coasters - please post some true and tried recipes.

    Little butter a little garlic, pepper. They cook quick. Very much like cooking scallops. Deglaze pan with white wine and make a light butter-wine sauce.

    That's my (and everyonelse's) go to recipe for white fish when pressed for time.

    Simple never fails.

    Please tell me they have more fat than scallops.

    I have some cheeks as well.  Been wondering what I was going to do with them.  Great idea!

    Zero fat. The cheeks are pure meat.
