I baked my foil packets in a 450 degree oven for 12 minutes. Very moist. The fresh dill sauce is really good.

YUM. Made the sauce with Tilapia, worked very well there too.

This was absolutely delicious. The only problem I had was that I didn't use reduced sodium broth and the sauce turned out a little salty for my taste. I recommend that you definitely use the reduced-sodium broth when you're making the sauce for this dish. Other than that its fabulous
