Halibut Cheeks Sauteed in Vermouth
A remarkably simple, yet elegant,
serving of delicious halibut cheeks.
• 1/2 lb Halibut
• 2 tbl Butter
• 2 tbl Dry Vermouth
• Salt, to taste
• Black Pepper, to taste
• 1/2 Lemon
• pinch Fresh Dill
Melt butter in pre-heated saute pan. Add the vermouth and the juice of 1/2
lemon. Add halibut, salt and freshly ground black pepper and saute for about
1 minute. Turn, cover and finish cooking on the other side, for a total cooking
time (over low heat) of about 8-9 minutes per inch of thickness of the fish.
(Start with the lower amount; overcooked halibut is dry and stringy; cook
until flaky and tender.)
Makes 2 servings.
