“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.” - by Always Cooking Up Something
Original recipe yields 2 servings
- Whisk the orange juice, cilantro, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes together in a small bowl; set aside.
- 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.

"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 leat..." See morehery fish. Well, as leathery as halibut cheeks can get."
"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. ..." See more Thanks!"
