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.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 (6 ounce) fillets halibut
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ pound cooked salad shrimp
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 lemon

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a cookie sheet with foil.
  2. 2 In a small bowl, mix together cream cheese and shrimp. Season to taste with basil, salt and pepper.
  3. 3 Make a pocket in each of the fillets, making sure you do not cut through on three sides. Divide the cream cheese mixture into 6 parts, and stuff each fillet. Place on foil lined pan. Squeeze lemon juice over fish.
  4. 4 Bake for 20 minutes, or until fish is thoroughly done.

  2. This recipe was good but I found the cream cheese didn't get very hot in the short cooking time which made it less appealing. I'll 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 - Read more ...
  3. 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 - Read more ...
  4. We loved this! I used tilapia as that's 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 I'll sprinkle either some paprika or - Read more ...
  5. he filling was good but the fish itself needs seasoning or marinating.
  6. This is the best way I have ever tried Halibut. I did add a topping though.
  7. 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. I'll keep this one handy as my son's catch alot of halibut fishing.
