"Halibut cheeks are really delicious and super-easy to cook. Here they are pan-seared and served with a zingy orange sauce with Asian seasonings. Great with asparagus and jasmine rice for a light and tasty Spring dinner."

  1. Whisk the orange juice, cilantro, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes together in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the halibut cheeks until golden brown on each side, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Pour the orange juice mixture into the skillet and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until the halibut flakes easily with a fork and the sauce has thickened slightly. Remove halibut cheeks to a plate and drizzle with orange sauce to serve.

Oh my this is SOOOO good!! Halibut is expensive but its wonderful in this recipe! Perfect paired with some brown rice! I used frozen halibut fillets that i thawed out and it was magnificent! ...

Really good. I used tilapia instead as I can't get good, fresh halibut in FL.

Wow! So good and so easy. I was halfway through mixing up the sauce when I realized I was out of cilantro so I left it out and it was still great. I didn't measure everything exactly so I kno...

Another winner in my opinion. You do have to be nutty about the cooking time however. No more than 3 or 4 minutes if you want tender Halibut.

I substituted tangerines plus Meyer Lemon juice, in lieu of oranges and it was still a great recipe!

Amazing. Unique combination of flavors. This is now one of our all-time favorite halibut recipes. I didn't have halibut cheeks so just used a regular filet. The first time I made it I used veget...

This dish was great. I used Talapia rather than Halibut. I made the sauce ahead and kept it in the freezer. Made for an great no fuss fish dish.
