  • 4 halibut filets fresh or frozen (approx. 4 oz. each)
  • 4 oz shrimp cooked, deveined, peeled with tails off
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese freshly-grated
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley minced, divided
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Preheat oven to 450°F / 200°C / gas mark 6. 
  • Liberally season the fish with salt and pepper and place it in a greased baking dish.
  • Chop the shrimp and transfer it to a bowl. Add the melted butter, sour cream, Parmesan cheese, and garlic. Stir in half of the minced parsley. Spread the shrimp mixture evenly over the halibut filets.
  • Bake at 450°F for 12 minutes. Halibut is done when the center flakes easily with a fork. To brown the top, turn the oven to broil and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Garnish with remaining minced parsley before serving.
