Crab Stuffed Halibut Recipe

Baked To Perfection 

Restaurant Halibut Recipe

This Crab Stuffed Halibut is just one example of the exquisite seafood entrées you can easily prepare at home from Real Restaurant Recipes.

And if you are a carbohydrate counter, this recipe only has about 1.7 carbs per serving! This will be one of your yummiest baked stuffed halibut recipes made with easy cooking instructions.

You can also use salmon instead of halibut and you'll have another fantastic meal.

Buy fresh, tender halibut fillets and give them a pocket and generously stuff the fish with a delicious sour cream-mayonnaise and crab meat mixture and bake them to perfection.

The crab mixture is the same one I use for the crab stuffed mushroom appetizer recipe.

If thick halibut fillets are not available, you can spread the crab mixture on top of thinner fillets and fold in half or even "roll" them. Use a tooth pick to keep in place during cooking. And the fresher the fish for this crab stuffed halibut recipe, the better!

Restaurant Halibut Recipe

Preparation time: 25 minutes. Serves 8.


  • Eight 6-7 ounce halibut fillets (Do not cut all the way through)
  • Clarified Butter (link takes you to easy recipe)
  • Sea salt
  • 1/2 - 1 cup of white wine
  • Crab mix or stuffing (click link or see below)


Ingredients For Crab Recipe:

  • 1 1/2 cups crab meat, moisture gently squeezed out (I use Dungeness crab)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 6 tablespoons chopped celery
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • Crab mix dressing (recipe below)


Instructions For Crab Mix:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine crab, onion, celery and black pepper
  • Add only enough crab dressing to moisten
  • Cover and refrigerate unless using immediately


Ingredients For Crab Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (fresh squeezed is great)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (Do Not add if crab meat is already salty)
  • 3 drops of Tabasco sauce


Instructions for Crab Dressing:

  • In a bowl, combine all crab dressing ingredients with a whip (whisk) or fork


Instructions for Stuffed Halibut:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Using a sharp kitchen knife, cut a pocket in the middle of each fillet
  • With a spoon, stuff each fillet with about two tablespoons of the crab mixture
  • Brush each fish fillet with clarified butter
  • Season fish with a little sea salt
  • Place crab stuffed halibut fillets in a baking dish and pour enough wine in the pan to cover the bottom of the pan (do not pour the wine over the fish - pour around the fillets)
  • Bake a 350 degrees F for about 25-30 minutes, checking for doneness at the 25 minute mark (allow 12-13 minutes per inch of fillet thickness, testing for doneness at the thickest part - fish will flake easily when tested with a knife)
  • Remove from oven and plate

Enjoy your stuffed halibut and the company of those you share it with!
