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.
