Cheesey Fish

I got this recipe from a halibut fisherman, I never would have thought to stuff fish with cheese. It isn't fancy looking, but it is amazingly tasty. Try it and you will have a new fish recipe for life.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 25 min
  • Ready Time : 40 min


4 Servings


  • 1 pound fillet firm white fish, such as halibut, skin removed
  • 2 ounces Natural and Kosher cheddar or gouda
  • 1/2 cup panko crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


Preheat the oven to 350.

If using a fish fillet (like halibut) that is more than ¾ inch thick cut it in half horizontally to get two pieces each about ¾ inches thick.  Combine the panko crumbs, garlic powder, onion powder and oregano in a small bowl.

Place the butter in another small bowl. Lay each piece of fish on a cutting board. Place one ounce of cheese at one end of each piece of fish and roll up the fish around the cheese. Secure the roll with a toothpick.

Dip the rolled fish in the melted butter and then coat it completely in the crumbs. Transfer the fish to a lightly greased baking dish.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the fish flakes when tested with a fork. Use a large spatula to transfer the fish and melted cheese to each serving plate and serve immediately.

    I’m wondering if I can use fresh cod or another white-fleshed fish for this recipe?

    Made this for dinner tonight. It was not liked by my family. I had a problem with using cheese and fish together, it is just something I wouldn’t normally do. I made it with rockfish. It is a white mild fish readily available where I live. There was nothing taste wise that would make me want to make this dish again.

    Sorry but this dish is just not that appealing to us.

  4. My husband does not like fish, and asked for 2nds on the fish. Would make it again. I used haddock and extra sharp cheddar cheese.

    A while ago, a friend told me to make a similar dish. It is a little different. Instead of using cheese, i use similar filets.
    dip them in yogurt or light sour cream (preferred), dip them
    in seasoned panko crumbs, roll (no toothpicks required) and put in greased baking dish and
    bake at 350 until done. My husband loves it.

    I used flounder, but instead of rolling up the fish, followed recipe and then put cheese over it to bake. Good milchig dinner (and easy). Thanx.

  7. Used sole and not the fatty fish
    Due to our diet, I changed the cheeses to lower fat as well.
    It was good – but not great.
    Not sure if I will make it again.
