We're trying to eat more fish around here. We live in Utah though, and fresh fish is NOT available. Unless you want your neighbors goldfish, or you fish for trout in the rivers around here.
I don't want either of those options, so I buy frozen and cross my fingers I can make something Captain Jax will eat (picky man. . .)
This one worked!! I'm glad too, because it was an impulse buy of 10lbs worth. . . .
Here's what you'll need:
- 3-4 tilapia fillets
- sour cream(there is a dairy free option out there!)
- mayonnaise (also easy to find dairy free)
- lemon juice
- garlic powder
- cajun seasonings
Mix together your sour cream, mayonnaise, and dill.
I love the smell of dill. I always forget, because it's not a commonly used spice in my kitchen, but I really love it.
I decided to pour the mixture over the fish and let it cook with it. You could do this, or you can drizzle it over the top when it's done cooking. It makes a lot of sauce, so it was easy to cover the fish completely while it cooked.
Mmmm, and it makes for a creamy yummy fish dish, that K-girl AND Captain Jax both loved.
This is the card I made for a fish recipe swap I'm in on SplitCoastStampers.
Creamy Dill Tilapia
- 4 tilapia fillets
- salt and pepper (to taste)
- 1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill (or dried)
While the fish is baking, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic powder, lemon juice, and dill in a bowl. Serve with the tilapia. You could also cover the fish with this sauce before baking.
