A light and creamy dill sauce lends lovely flavor to tender fish fillets. "I like to serve this easy entree with a tossed salad and asparagus or a rice salad," says Sharon Semph of Salem, Oregon.


  • 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 dill sprigs
  • 2 red snapper fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon snipped fresh dill or 1/8 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced green onion


  1. Place the lemon slices, onions and dill sprigs in a foil-lined baking pan. Top with fish fillets; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold foil around fish and seal tightly.
  2. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Serve with fish.
