Crab Stuffed Halibut with Pears & Brie Recipe

Crab Stuffed Halibut with Pears & Brie is a super easy recipe to make. Perfect for a special occasion meal and easy enough for a weeknight meal.  The richness of the crab and the creaminess of the brie compliment the delicate flavor of the halibut perfectly.

When I lived in Alaska we’d go out halibut fishing at least once a season and would come home with enough fish to get us through the winter and have enough to share.  So I have lots of halibut recipes.  This is definitely one of my favorite ways to cook halibut.

A super easy stress-free meal.

Halibut can dry out if overcooked, but the stuffing helps to keep the halibut fillets moist and tender.
