Halibut Cheeks and Vermouth

1/2 lb halibut cheeks
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp dry vermouth
1/2 lemon
pinch fresh dill, finely chopped

Melt butter in pre-heated sautee pan. Add the vermouth and the juice of 1/2 lemon. Add halibut, salt and freshly ground black pepper and sautee 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.)
