Oven Roasted Stuffed Alaskan Halibut


Today's recipe comes from lifelong Alaskan Naomi Everett, Assistant Professor of Culinary Arts at the University of Alaska, Anchorage and former executive chef at Settler's Bay Lodge in Wasilla, Alaska.

Chef Everett won the 2006 Great Alaska Seafood Cook-Off with her Alaskan Halibut, Salmon and King Crab Roulade.

As she says, “I love cooking and I love teaching students how to cook! I strive to create the best and most realistic learning environment I can while learning how to engage my students one-on-one.”

Oven Roasted Stuffed Alaskan Halibut
by Chef Naomi Everett
Prep Time: 15 minutes; Cook Time 20 minutes
Serves 4

Stuffing
2 oz. brie cheese, cut in small dices (rind as well)
1 teaspoon finely diced shallot
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon finely diced red pepper
1 Tablespoon finely diced yellow pepper
1 teaspoon fresh chopped tarragon
Salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Buerre Blanc
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 small shallot, minced
1/2 lb. butter, cubed, at room temperature
Salt, to taste

Halibut 
2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh herbs (Italian parsley, chives, dill)
Salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • Heat oven to 375°F.
  • Combine all ingredients for stuffing well, by hand, in a small bowl. Refrigerate until needed.
  • In a saucepan, combine white wine, lemon juice, and shallots. Simmer until reduced by three-quarters. Turn down heat to low, then gently whisk in butter, a few pieces at a time, until thickened and sauce coats the back of a spoon. Remove sauce from heat; season with salt. Keep in a warm place until ready to serve, stirring occasionally to keep sauce smooth.
  • Season both sides of halibut fillets with salt and pepper. Generously sprinkle the chopped herbs on the top-side. Cut a small pocket about 1/2-inch to 1-inch deep, into the top of each halibut, being careful not to cut all the way through the fish. Gently stuff each piece of halibut with 1/4 of the crab mixture, leaving some on top of the fish.
  • Place stuffed fish on a spray-coated baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, just until cooked through. Serve fish immediately with buerre blanc sauce spooned over the top.
