Baked Salmon Cheeks with Fresh Dill


3 tbsp butter
1 lb fresh salmon cheeks
Salt & pepper to taste
1tbsp fresh chopped dill
Juice of 1 lemon
1/3 cup fish stock


In an oven proof sauce pan, add 1 tbsp of butter to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the salmon cheeks and salt & pepper to taste. Sprinkle with the fresh chopped dill, and add lemon juice.

Bake for 6 minutes at 500 degrees. Remove pan from oven and transfer salmon cheeks to a warm serving dish, reserving the sauce in the pan. Add fish stock to the reserved liquid and bring to a boil over high heat. Scrape bottom of the pan well, and reduce sauce by half. When reduced, stir in the remaining butter and simmer 3-4 minutes until thickened. Pour the sauce over the salmon cheeks and serve.




Cheeks are the most tender part of the fish, and full of Omega-3 oils. Try Halibut and Sturgeon cheeks too!
