Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  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.

The sauce is great - make it! Because of other reviews of the fish I changed the cooking method and had great success. I used the same seasonings but pan fried the Tilapia filets in a little butter and olive oil. I used medium high heat to get crispy edges. I sprinkled lemon juice over the top - fabulous!

I loved the dill sacue for this recipe. The fish itself was ok, and it would have gotten less stars had it not been for the dill sauce. It was great, and I only made 2 fish fillets but kept the dill sauce the same so I could use it on my steamed asparagus. It tasted great on both the fish and asparagus. I used plain fat-free yogurt instead of sour cream, and light mayo. That way I could feel better about eating so much of it. ;)

This was pretty good. I realized as I was prepping that I was out of cajun seasoning, so I just used a little garlic powder and crushed red pepper. I am also wary of drying the fish out, as has happened to me too often, so I put a little butter on before seasoning. Made the sauce exactly as the recipe calls for. I found it to be just a little tart, but the family seemed to like it. (I tend not to put lemon on my fish, so I'm probably biased) Was very easy, so I'll make again.
