Halibut Rillette with Summer Herb Salad

By Chef Deniz Tarakcioglu

August 12th, 2021



  • 300g halibut filets
  • 200mL sour cream
  • 10mL espelette pepper
  • 50mL cream cheese, soft
  • 10mL fennel seeds, crushed
  • 100mL diced fresh fennel
  • 250mL assorted soft herbs (parsley, dill, green onions, mint, etc)
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • 10mL smoked paprika
  • 50mL capers, chopped
  • 30mL dill pickles, finely chopped


  • Season the filets of halibut with salt and let them rest for a few minutes. Bring 500mL of water to a boil in a medium sized pot. When boiling, turn off the heat and put the halibut filets in. When the halibut softly flakes, put the filet out, flake the filet into a large chunk, and cool completely. In a medium bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and halibut together (excluding the herbs). Serve in ramekins, covered with fresh herbs, with crackers.
