Here's a Maine tradition. The lemon juice adds a great flavor to the fish and the mayonnaise keeps the fillets moist. Sure to please!

  1. Spray a 9x13-inch pan with Pam and wipe gently with a paper towel.

  3. Salt& pepper the fillets, and lay evenly in pan.
  4. Smother fillets liberally with mayonnaise.
  5. Top with dill and generously sprinkle on Old Bay seasoning.

  7. Bake in 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until fish flakes.
  8. Serve with lemon wedges.

Maine-iac, this is a great recipe and so very simple to do! I prepared this for supper Saturday night and my husband kept remarking how moist and flavorful his fish was and HE gave it 5 stars! I used a beautiful 1 1/2 lb. piece of cod and was generous with the seasonings. I was surprised just how well the mayonnaise worked at keeping the fish moist! We eat seafood alot and I know this recipe will be used often. This recipe is a keeper, Maine-iac, and is going into my State of the "Art" seafood collection!

This is very good fish ! I used halibut filets. The fresh dill is abundant in my garden and I used a lot of it! The mayonaise made it moist, and I added a few onion slices for more flavor. Very Good!! Thanks for the recipe, Maine-iac!

Wow!! What a deal. I used halibut fillets. The dill and Old Bay combined really knocked our socks off. The fillets turned our so tender and moist. Thanks Maine-iac, my family and I so enjoyed these. We salute you!!!
