Baked Tilapia with Creamy Lemon Dill Sauce

There are so many amazing food blogs out there. Don't you agree? One of my faves is Jenn's Food Journey. That girl is a master at grilling, and she also shares my love of sauce. She does love fish too, tilapia in particular! And she is so sweet... she has invited me to be a guest blogger on her blog, and helped me with any questions I had in improving my blog. She's a sweetheart! And she also makes some great food! Like this tilapia dish, with a delicious sauce. I'm glad I'm not the only one who appreciates a good sauce, whether it be with seafood, beef, pork, or any kind of meat! We both share a love of sauce, that's why I love her! Yes, meat is delicious. But add some sauce and it is pretty irresistible. 

Baked Tilapia with Creamy Lemon Dill Sauce
slightly adapted from Jenn's Food Journey
  • 2 tilapia filets
  • salt, pepper, and garlic powder, for seasoning
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried dill weed
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Rinse the fish and pat dry. Season both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place fish in the prepared baking dish and place in the oven. Baked for 15 minutes, rotating dish halfway through. 

While the fish is baking, place the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Mircowave on low for about 20 seconds or until ingredients are blended smoothly. Stir until smooth. Let sit for 5 minutes. Serve over fish or on the side. 

We haven't always necessarily been fish kind of people, but add some sauce and we are set! This was definitely a delicious fish dish with a flavorful sauce. I would definitely make it again!

Peace, and bacon grease!

I've been trying to incorporate more fish into my families diet, but they are pretty picky. Thanks for sharing a recipe for it that I think they'll love.
