4 (4 ounce) fillets
butter flavored cooking spray
chopped fresh dill weed
lemon juice, or to taste
Microwave cream cheese only 17 secounds. Cook Fish 25 min. Go easy on the lemon juice in sauce. Make extra sauce. Left out lemon pepper. Substitute 1/2 tsp dry dill for every tblsp of fresh dill. Use butter instead of Margarine.
The sauce was both bitter and tart. We scraped it off, but there was so much lemon baked into the fish that it was still too tart to eat. Maybe it would be good with WAY less lemon.
My family loved this... but I gave it only 4 stars because I changed it quite a bit.
First, I breaded the fish with a mixture of bread crumbs, dill, and garlic. Then fried the fish in olive oil. To make the sauce, I used a little less lemon like other reviewers, but added some milk to thin the sauce a bit. I also added some chopped onion to give the sauce a kick. All in all, very tasty.
Very good. I cut back 1/2 way on the lemon- for both recipies. I also tripled the cream cheese sauce. Needs salt. Good basic recipe, you could really do a lot with this. Will make again.
When I made this my husband commented that he "didn't really like fish, but thought this was delicious". The Dill Sauce was amazingly delicious. I would use less lemon next time. It was a bit tart.
This was suberb! Instead of microwave, I used a small saucepan on the stove. Next time, I'll use less lemon juice for a richer cream cheese taste vs the lemon. Excellent & a keeper! Thank you!
My daughters were a little skeptical of the sauce, but after tasting it they cleaned their plates. I used about 1/2 tablespoon of dry dill weed instead of fresh in the sauce.
I doubled this recipe for a family gathering, and it was a big hit. Followed previous suggestions to cut lemon juice in the sauce down by half, and it turned out great. Additional suggestion, make the sauce ahead of time so the dill's full flavor can come out.
Over all, nice and light, would definitely make again!
