Fish & Lemon Halibut Cakes

Halibut Cakes

As harvest 2020 begins and the fires temporarily subside, it’s time to think positive thoughts – like what’s for dinner. I’m digging into my freezer for the last of the halibut caught in last year’s Alaskan fishing adventure. Here is a complement to any table.


  • 1 pound halibut, cooked and cooled
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¾ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons oil for frying
  • Lemon juice


  1. Mix cheese, egg, mayo, onion, 2 tablespoons panko, Worcestershire sauce together. Add halibut and salt and pepper.
  2. Put ¾ cup panko in a large dish. Shape Halibut mixture into 6 cakes and dip both sides into panko to coat.
  3. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat and fry cakes 5 minutes per side. Squeeze lemon juice on top and serve.
