Halibut with a Lemon Dill Sauce


I like simple but good ingredients to enhance the flavors of fish. This is a very light and flavorful meal. It’s easy to make, takes little time and is very good for you. My daughter can’t get enough of this meal – she LOVES it.

  • 2 fillets of halibut, orange roughy or tilapia
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill or 1-2 tsp dried dill
  • 1-2 clove garlic, minced

Combine the above ingredients in a large ziplock bag making sure to mix them thoroughly. Marinate for 2-4 hours. Don’t add lemon to the marinade until you are cooking the meal. The acid in the lemon will start to cook the fish.

  • 1-2 lemons juiced

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a glass baking dish with cooking spray. Add the lemon juice to the fish in the bag. Combine ingredients well then pour into baking dish. Cover with lid or tinfoil and cook for 10-12 minutes per 1 inch thickness. Serve with lemon slices. If you want to splurge a bit, add butter to the top of each fillet for a richer sauce.
