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.

  • 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


  • 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.


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