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.

Ingredients

  • 4 8 ounce halibut fillets - cut a pocket in each fillet
  • 6 ounces crab meat - lump or claw
  • 6 ounces Brie
  • 3 T mayonnaise
  • 3 T dijon mustard
  • ½ cup pear - diced
  • 3 shallots - chopped
  • 4 leaves fresh sage - finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Balsamic vinegar reduce to a syrup

Instructions

  • Mix dijon and mayonnaise in a small bowl
  • In a medium bowl combine crab meat, brie, dijon/mayo mix, pear, shallots, and sage.
  • Stuff fillets with crab/Brie mixture.
  • Brush both sides of halibut fillets with olive oil.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes per 1 inch of thickness, or until fish is opaque and flakes. Careful not to overcook.
  • Drizzle with balsamic reduction.

Notes

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

    Amazing. All my guests loved it (I made it for a pre-lockdown dinner party). Forgot to buy sage so used dill instead. Served with a green peppercorn cream sauce. Has become a regular dish in my house.
