Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce ***

May 14, 2008 Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce
Recipe from:

  • 4 (4 ounce) fillets tilapia
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning, or to taste
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced

  • SAUCE:

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Season the tilapia fillets with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning on both sides. Arrange the seasoned fillets in a single layer in the baking dish. Place a layer of lemon slices over the fish fillets. I usually use about 2 slices on each piece so that it covers most of the surface of the fish.
  3. Bake uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  4. While the fish is baking, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic powder, lemon juice and dill in a small bowl. Serve with tilapia.
Comments: I didn't have fresh lemon so I dabbled with lemon juice. This fish turned out fantastic, I loved it! If you don't have "Cajun Seasoning" I totally recommend getting some. I have tried it on a lot of recipes lately and I really like it. I tried making my own, not the same. This was a fast recipe with delicious results, and pretty good for you (if you hold back on the sauce)

Served with: I made spaghetti noodles mixed with butter, parmesan cheese, italian spices, salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil all mixed together--it was awesome. I also made steamed broccoli drizzled with lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Three stars!

I cannot WAIT to try this. Plus, it'll give me a way to use all the dill that's going nuts in my herb garden.

I made this tonight and it was REALLY good. I served it over rice, at Bart's request, and then with a green salad and some garlic/cheese bread. Mmm, delicious!

Weird how all of the directions are in really really tiny font. I guess copy and paste is not my friend. Glad you figured it out anyway Janssen! For anyone else, it was something to the effect of "put spices on fish. Cook fish for 20 minutes until it flakes easily with fork. Serve with sauce." Or something ;)
