I know that Thanksgiving is this week, and I apologize for not posting anything relating to the holiday. It's just that, well, I don't make Thanksgiving dinner until Thanksgiving, so I don't have any recipes or pictures to share with you until after the fact. (At least I'll have material for you next year!!) So if you are looking for ideas for your Thanksgiving meal, you may have come to the wrong blog...BUT...if you are just looking for tasty recipes to help you get through the rest of the year...then welcome...and, oh boy, do I have a recipe for you today!
The sauce girl is back!!! Did you miss me while I was away? Well, never fear, I am back and I am sharing one of the simplest sauce recipes ever. Not only is it simple, but it is delicious...what more could you ask for in a sauce, right??? AND not only is the sauce simple, but the fish is too. Honestly, this meal is ready, from start to finish, in 20 minutes or less...the perfect week night meal for sure! And, for those of you that are not fish eaters, this would work well with chicken too :) Enjoy!
Baked Tilapia with Creamy Lemon Dill Sauce
4 Tilapia fillets
lemon pepper seasoning
2 Tablespoons cream cheese
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray. Rinse the fish and pat dry. Season both sides with lemon pepper seasoning. Place in the prepared baking dish and place in the oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes, rotating dish half way through, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
While the fish is baking, place the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Microwave on low for about 20 seconds. Stir until smooth. If the cream cheese is not melted enough, keep putting it back in the microwave for 5 -10 seconds at a time, until the cheese blends smoothly with the other ingredients. Let sit for 5 minutes. Serve over fish or on the side.
