Greek Style Fish

So you may remember my story of our intern, Casey, who we thought we would lose and then was brought on as a permanent employee at the last minute... Well, her mom, Annette (along with Casey), is now a reader of my blog!  Not only is she reading my blog, but she also passed along a recipe that she knew I would enjoy:  Greek Style Mahi-Mahi.  Since you all know we don't really eat anything other fish then tilapia (don't worry, I know all about tilapia and to put all your minds at ease, I know where it comes from so we're ok!!), I figured it would work just as well.  Now, as you know, I can't seem to follow an exact recipe, so I did things a little different, but oh.. my... goodness, was this a fantastic tasting fish.  This would actually work on any white fish...heck, it would even work well on salmon or trout.  But, as you know, I'm a sucker for sauces, so how could I not be smitten with this??

Thank you, Annette, this is quickly becoming a favorite in our house!!

Ingredients:
4 Tilapia fillets (or any white fish)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 T crumbled feta cheese
2 Tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
1 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon lemon juice (plus a little for drizzling on fish)
garlic salt and pepper 

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil.  In a small bowl combine the mayo, cheese, mint, dill, and lemon juice; stir to combine.  Place the fish in prepared pan, drizzle with a little lemon juice, and season with garlic salt and pepper.  Place in oven and bake for 5 minutes.  Remove from oven and evenly spread the mayo mixture over each piece of fish.  Place back in oven and continue to bake another 8-10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.  Enjoy!

Greek!! Hooray! The sauce sounds so good - I'd like to try that made with greek yogurt instead of the mayo. Or 1/2 & 1/2 :) Sounds way way delicious Jenn!

Hi Jenn, so happy you liked this! It was the "sauce love" that made me think of you. My husband read your blog the other night and now has his own requests! Thanks for all the great recipes!
