Halibut cheeks are a delightful delicacy. These beautiful, large medallions of tender white fish have a similar buttery, sweet flavor and texture to scallops. Halibut cheeks are prized for their tenderness and sweet taste.
Our Salish Sea Halibut is very special: light and lean -and prized for its delicate texture and robust flavor. Salish Sea Halibut spend their entire lives in cold deep water eating spot prawns and Dungeness crab. No wonder they taste so good!
This halibut is harvested exclusively by tribal fishers in the Salish Sea. For years we’ve known that it is far and away the best halibut we have eaten, but because the tribal season starts the same day the Alaska and Coastal seasons start, there has been no effort to separate it out from the large volume of other halibut that hits the market at the same time. This is only a 3-week season, and then there is no more Salish Sea halibut for another year.
