Our new fresh frozen wild Alaskan halibut cheeks are traditionally line caught by experienced fishermen in the remote, icy waters of Southeastern Alaska. Because our halibut is line caught, the stresses to the fish are exponentially minimized thus ensuring a high quality, perfectly textured and flavored meat. As well as being sustainably harvested, our wild Alaskan halibut cheeks are cleaned and frozen at sea within minutes of being caught. This locks in all the exceptional flavor and nutritional value for your ultimate dining pleasure. Halibut are among the largest of the saltwater fish with some of the heaviest weighing in at over 500 lbs. Our cheeks come from much smaller halibut, because these have the much sought after exceptional taste profile. Halibut cheeks are renowned as the most tender, juicy and flavorful part of the fish and is highly sought after in the culinary world. Our favorite way to eat them is leave them as the star of the dish and simply lightly saute them with garlic and butter.
