  • Ready In

  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.

  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Mmph, this was okay. I may have used too much seasoning as it completely overpowered the fish. The sauce was mediocre. I make better homemade tarter. Maybe better with a stronger fish, tilap...

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 th...

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 ha...

This would have been just another fish recipe if not for the sauce; serving the two together exceeded any expectations I might have had. The only helpful hint I would even dare to suggest would...

Excellent recipe! Loved the dill sauce! I did add a bit more garlic powder than called for, I used about 1/4 tsp. instead of 1/8 tsp. I didn't have fresh dill so I used 1 Tsp. dry dill instead. ...

I love this recipe just for the sauce! I use whatever fish (mahi, salmon, etc) I have on hand, and I don't season the fish. I sub low-fat plain yogurt for the mayo & sour cream, and I add WAY mo...

Every now and then I come across a recipe that far exceeded my expectations and this was one of them. Whoa, was this good! We blackened the tilapia with the Cajun seasoning in a cast iron skille...

This recipe is really good! The only thing I didn't like was that the sauce was cold and made the fish cool down really quick. So next time I will heat up the sauce as well. Very good! Thank...

I just cooked the fish with salt and pepper and then served it with the dill sauce. Awesome sauce!!!
