One of the ocean’s true delicacies is the Halibut Cheek. Cut from the fleshy, boneless cheek muscle of the Halibut, Halibut Cheeks are mild sweet and tender. The texture is firm and delicate with the best comparison being like a combination of crab meat and a sea scallop. A perfectly cooked Halibut Cheek will simply pull apart from itself, while cut with a fork, in delicate striations.
