Fresh Alaskan Halibut Cheeks are cut from the fleshy, boneless cheek muscle of the Halibut. Our fresh cheeks are disc-shaped and average three inches in diameter, however there can be quite a bit of variation depending upon the size of the fish. They are mild, tender, delicate, and somewhat sweeter than the Halibut Fillet. The texture can best be described as a combination of a sea scallop and crabmeat. They are highly sought after and are a true ocean delicacy.
