Quick and Easy Baked Stuffed Halibut, a delicious baked fish dish, with the perfect stuffing. The perfect weeknight meal.
What to cook, what to cook? That seems to be a question I ask myself quite often these days. Summer has arrived and for that reason my family requests pasta less and less.
So now I am looking at making pasta twice a week at the most. I have to admit when pasta is served it kind of makes my life a lot easier, serve a little salad, a tasty meat or fish dish or even some Prosciutto crudo and there you go, everyone is happy. But no pasta?!
That is where this Quick and Easy Baked Stuffed Halibut comes in handy.
As I served this delicious baked halibut dish for lunch last week, my husband’s first response was “this is your Mom’s recipe isn’t it”? “Umm yeah it is” and why would he think that? Because he said it reminded him of Canada.
I knew exactly what he meant, it’s the bread stuffing! Look out turkey, baked halibut handles a bread stuffing just as well.
To tell the truth it isn’t exactly stuffed into the halibut, (it sits on top of a deliciously creamy combination of mayonnaise, halibut and spices), and this makes it a little bit crunchy too. Love that.
I used fresh Halibut. I am sure it would work with frozen also, but I would thaw it out first and paper towel dry, just to make sure there is as little moisture as possible.
Quick and Easy Baked Stuffed Halibut is the kind of dish that is perfect for a family dinner or fancy enough for company coming. Buon Appetito!
