This recipe is based on one by Dorcy's grandma, who raised 16 kids in the Alaskan wilderness during the 1930-40’s, and had access to abundant halibut. Naturally, she became very creative with ways to use it. He grew up with this dish, and although he loved it as a child, he’s become it’s master chef as an adult. Dorcy hopes it would make his grandma proud.


  • 1 pound (1 package) halibut burger meat Available in Our Seafood Subscription Box

  • 5 ounces fresh goat cheese

  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 5 ounces fresh spinach (about two big handfuls)

  • 8 corn tortillas

  • 8 ounces enchilada sauce (you can make your own but in a pinch we’d recommend Frontera’s red Chile version)


Season burger meat with salt and pepper to taste. Heat olive oil over medium heat, and sauté burger meat until opaque.

Add spinach to Halibut meat and sauté until just wilted. Set aside to cool.

Turn broiler to low. As the oven heats, mix goat cheese and garlic salt into the cooked halibut.

Heat small skillet on high and briefly fry each tortilla until warmed and slightly crisp.

Fill each tortilla with 2-3 spoonfuls of halibut filling. Wrap tortillas around filling and place in 9x9 dish, seam side down.

Pour enchilada sauce and sprinkle extra goat cheese over enchiladas. Broil 8-10 minutes or until cheese begins to bubble & brown. Serve hot.

Dorcy's pro cooking tip: You’ll love this recipe so much, but unfortunately you won’t always have halibut burger on hand. Fear not! It works great with halibut fillets, too.
