Baked Tilapia with Dill Sour Cream

It seems that I keep adding to my list of "things to make" a lot faster than I am actually able to make them, but lately I have noticed a tendency of being drawn to the "easy recipes" first. This one is no exception! It requires minimal work, but you wouldn't know it from the results! I love the flavor of dill, and it especially goes well with fish. I initially saw this recipe on Kalyn's Kitchen, but made a few changes that are shown below. I also used tilapia instead of halibut because it was easier to find and cheaper, but you could use any mild white fish you wish.
 Baked Tilapia with Dill Sour Cream
Serves 2 (adapted from Kalyn's Kitchen)
  • 2-3 tilapia filets (about 8-12oz total)
  • 3 Tbsp low fat sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp mayo made with olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (or 1/4 tsp garlic powder)
  • 1/8 tsp Beau Monde seasoning (optional, but I like it!)
  • 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped (you can use dried, but reduce to 1/2 tsp)
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2.  Season tilapia with salt and pepper and place in a baking dish.
  3. Combine sour cream, mayo, beau monde, garlic, dill, and Parmesan.
  4. Spread an even layer of the sour cream mixture over the fish.
  5. Bake for 15-20 min until firm. This will vary depending on the thickness of your fish. (Ours took about 16 min, but the fillets were pretty thin). 
  6. Sprinkle with green onions and serve. 


  1. I've made this too! And I've adapted it to use Greek yogurt and feta cheese. It's a favorite in our kitchen :)

  2. Cara-
    That's a great idea. I will have to add that to my list of your recipes that I want to try :)

  3. This looks so fresh and delicious! I love the idea of dill sour cream :)
