Something delicious to make with leftover halibut or cod or any white fish. My Alaskan family and extended family in the lower 48 love these.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add halibut fillets; season with salt and pepper. Cook until flesh flakes easily with a fork, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; cool until easily handled, about 5 minutes. Flake into small chunks.

  • Mix Italian cheese blend, egg, mayonnaise, onion, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, dry mustard, and seafood seasoning together in a large bowl. Gently mix in flaked halibut.

  • Pour 3/4 cup bread crumbs into a shallow dish. Shape halibut mixture into 6 cakes and dip both sides in bread crumbs to coat.

  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add halibut cakes and cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes:

Use your favorite type of grated cheese.

If mixture appears dry in step 2, add more mayonnaise.

9-20-2018 The fortuitous events of Hubs (who doesn t like halibut) being in Canada and my having more halibut the other night than I could eat in one sitting led me to this recipe. What a winner! I didn t have lemon but that didn t stop me from making this I m one of those rare individuals who doesn t like lemon with my fish anyway. I didn t have Italian blend cheese (don t use it) but the shredded blend I had on hand worked just fine. I also used half the amount of Worcestershire called for which I did because it seemed like overkill to me. Good call at least for my tastes. I served this over Maque Choux and it was awesome good. Just wish I hadn t let the frying time get away from me it goes from just right to overbrowned in the blink of an eye! Read More

Delicious!!! I read other reviewer notes and left off the breadcrumb coating and they were perfect! I subbed a few spices for the Old Bay that I did not have. For the cheese, I mixed some shredded mozzarella with grated good parmesan. I also made them with salmon. Keeper recipe!! To keep from falling apart, I pressed batter into a 1/4 cup measure and gently tapped the cakes out into pan & didn't move or flip them until browned on one side. At this size you'll get more than 6.

These turned out delicious. I had left over (if you can believe that) baked halibut. This is nearly exact recipe I have always used. Absolutely delicious ... hollandaise sauce & excellent Halibut eggs Benedict. Read More

Fantastic way to use leftover halibut. Only change I made was to use celery instead of onion because onion doesn t agree with me. Yummy and I ll definitely make it again! Thank you for sharing Lori. Read More

Yes. I added celery and a pinch of Cayenne. I made 6 patties- nope not next time- I ll make 10! They are very good they just fell apart when I fried them so I m thinking they were too big. Awesome! Read More
