Halibut With Mushroom Cream Sauce

Halibut With Mushroom Cream Sauce

D. Rattray
Halibut is a mild, delicious fish with a wonderful texture. These halibut fillets are simply baked with a little butter and seasonings then served with a mushroom cream sauce. This recipe can be halved quite easily for 2.


  • 4 halibut fillets, about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • salt and pepper
  • .
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 to 6 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 to 6 green onions, trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sherry
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt or Cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic seasoned pepper or other pepper blend


Heat oven to 350°. Butter a baking dish; place halibut fillets in baking dish. Brush with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, basting occasionally with the butter, or until fish begins to flake with a fork.

Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, make mushroom sauce. In a saucepan, heat butter over medium-low heat; add mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are golden brown and tender. Add green onions. Add flour, stirring until well blended. Gradually stir in chicken broth and milk until smooth. Add sherry and seasonings. Contine cooking, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened and bubbly.
Serve halibut with sauce. Serves 4.

This recipe can be easily halved for 2, or cook 2 halibut fillets and freeze half of the sauce for another meal.

Really easy and SOOOOO good., Member tjmoffett

Let me begin with the end-result: the sauce is exceptionally rich and delicious... a perfect compliment to a halibut filet. I'm no master chef but this was still a very easy recipe to follow. More importantly, you can adjust the seasoning/flavor to your taste as it simmers. I pan-sauteed the halibut and used brown Italian mushrooms hoping for a Tuscan flavor and it delivered. Thanks!
