Recipe: Stuffed Halibut

These halibut fillets are stuffed with a mixture of cream cheese and salad shrimp. If the thick filets are not available, you can spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the thinner filets and fold in half, using a tooth pick to keep in place during cooking. The fresher the fish for this recipe, the better This is great served with fresh steamed broccoli.

  • 6 (6 ounce) fillets halibut

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • pound cooked salad shrimp

  • salt to taste

  • ground black pepper to taste

Stuffed Halibut Reviews

  • This one was a winner with my family. I only had thin pieces so layered them in a dish, spread on the filling and topped with another layer of fish. Also was great with a touch of garlic and italian seasoning. Ill keep this one handy as my sons catch alot of halibut fishing.

  • This is the best way I have ever tried Halibut. I did add a topping though.

  • This recipe was quick, fast, and delicious. I was unable to find fresh halibut, but used orange ruffy and it was a big hit. My family loved it served over rice. I prepared it ahead of time by stuffing the filets (about 15 minutes) and refrigerated them. A stress free meal.

  • We loved this I used tilapia as thats what I had on hand. The filets are to thin that I simply coated one filet with the filling and topped it with another before baking. I added some fresh chopped garlic. This dish would benefit from some color. Next time Ill sprinkle either some paprika or parsley on top. Neither will alter the taste of the dish. Thanks for sharing

  • Very good and easy. This was my first time cooking fish so I was nervous. I seasoned and stuffed the fish the night before and put it in the fridge, then I baked it the next night. I added butter to the stuffing. I put the cream cheese mixture inside and on top of the fish. Halibut was not available so I used Mahi Mahi. Everyone that ate it raved about it Thanks

  • He filling was good, but the fish itself needs seasoning or marinating.

  • This is a great dish, my family loves it, I have also used Orange Roughy for this and it was great.Thanks Debbie for sharing your recipe.

  • I made this for my family and we all really enjoyed this very much. I also could not find any halibut so I used one large piece (about .65 lbs) of Orange Roughy and cut the cream cheese in half.It was enough to feed a family of two adults and 2 toddlers which I served with a salad, steamed broccoli and some corn on the cob. Also, I used larger cooked cocktail shrimp and cut them in half. I found it helpful to mix the cream cheese with the basil, salt and pepper FIRST since I had a hard time incorporating the shrimp without damaging it. I just stuffed the cream cheese mixture with the shrimp randomly and it came out great Thanks for this recipe. We will definitely be making this again

  • This recipe was good but I found the cream cheese didnt get very hot in the short cooking time which made it less appealing. Ill probably try it again but put the cream cheese mixture on the top of fish filet so I can broil it if needed. My husband also suggested cooking it in tinfoil packet? I also added garlic for additional flavoring which was good.

  • There is no mistaking that you are pretty much eating warm cream cheese on top of an expensive piece of fish. Yuck. The filling seems like it would be more fitting as a cracker or bagel topping. All of my family ended up scraping the filling off and just eating the fish. Will definitely not be making this one again. Sorry.

  • The filling for this was very tasty but the fish itself was kind of bland. I want to try it with crabmeat instead of shrimp, and season up the fish a bit. It is very quick and easy to make.

  • This was a winner with my family.But I did not have halibut and used talapia it was simple and easy and good.Ill make it again and again.

  • This is a good recipe, I used salmon instead of halibut and it was just as good. Its surprisingly easy to make as well.

  • A wonderful dish Its so fast and easy

  • This recipe was great Even my husband, who is not a big fan of fish liked it I used goat cheese and dill instead of cream cheese & basil.

  • This was good for a one time meal but I dont think I will cook it again.

  • Really good flavor, surprisingly easy we served it with the Parmesan-Black Pepper Arborio Rice Pilaf. Yum

  • My family and I really enjoyed this recipe. It was so easy to do and looked pretty next to my sauteed spinach I didnt have any basil or lemons on hand, so I mixed Italian seasonings in the stuffing, placed any remaining stuffing on top of the fish, and sprinkled it with lemon pepper before baking it. I softened the cream cheese in the microwave for a minute before mixing in the other ingredients and and no problems with the shrimp breaking. Next time I may add a little chopped spinach inside the stuffing. Thanks :)

  • This was so simple and great tasting. I used it on top of cod..great It would also taste terrific as a spread on crackers, minus the fish of course.

  • Delicious

  • Mmmmm My husband and 3 yr old loved it. It will be used often at my house. My husband thought I had slaved and prepared forever and it was very simple and quick. Thanks Debbie

  • So good I did also add some tobasco on the top before baking just to add some zazz.

  • This was an amazing dish I substituted crab for shrimp and it turned out fabulously I also sliced thin lemon wheels and layed them on top of the fish while they baked. Ill be making it again

  • I used tilapia instead of halibut. For the stuffing I used shrimps and scallops. I also added a bit of breadcrumbs for texture. I was afraid the melted cream cheese would be too sloppy, so the breadcrumbs helped make it thicker. I forgot the lemon. The results were good, but the fish really needs a bit of flavor. I added parsley and paprika, but that doesnt add much flavor. Fiance liked it and said it was different, because he has never has cream cheese in a dish before. Id make this again, but need to alter the recipe. Perhaps a more flavorful fish would have helped...

  • Was Great. We tried one dish with the shrimp, and another with crab. Both were good. A little bit creamy for me and my childrens taste, mainly because we are enjoy the falvor of out meat/fish. But my husband enjoyed every bite, as he is more about sauce flavor.

  • Im rating this based on a slight change I made because of the reviews Ive read concerning bland flavor for this. As I started mixing up the ingredients, it appeared to me that it was missing butter and garlic. I mixed a cut garlic clove with some butter in a saucepan, heated it with some lemon juice, removed the garlic clove, and spooned that butter sauce over the opened up halibut pieces before putting the filling in. I finished off the top with the same sauce. It doesnt take much butter and garlic to add some flavor. This was very delicious We will definitely have this again YUM Thanks for posting this recipe (way back a long time ago)

  • This recipe goes really well with any white fish as it complements the taste without overpowering. Will have to try with fresh Salmon when the season comes around.

  • We added bacon on top. This was the perfect addition to make it a 5 star recipe. Also needed 40 minutes to cook and we increased the temp to 350. Turned out fabulous. I will make this again.

  • The filling came out incredibly rich, so to stop it from becoming overwhelming I added in about a cup of breadcrumbs to make it more stuffing-like. It was delicious

  • Pretty good, but I just had really small pieces. They had a hard time stayin gtogether, but I would definitely try this again.
