Baked Red Snapper in Dill Sauce

Baked Red Snapper in Dill Sauce created by Laura_Faith

My family adores fresh Red Snapper and we are so lucky this time of year to buy freshly caught fish from the local fisherman. This simple recipe compliments the fish and is so quick and easy to make. This also works nicely with halibut.

  • Combine sauce ingredients in small bowl:

  • Season with salt and pepper.

  • Spread some sauce in the middle of 2 plates. Top with the fish, onions and lemon.

  • Note: I made this last night but didn't have mayo. Substituted sour cream. I think I like that better. 07/23/05.

    Delish! Added small amount of Dairy Free Sriracha Mayo & Cream Cheese to sauce. Served with Tikka Marsala basmati rice. Used thicker fillets. 25mins.

    Great recipe! I use fresh dill, and add lemon zest to the sauce. I use a larger red snapper fillet, so it usually takes about 25 minutes to cook.

    Made this with a large chunk of red snapper cut into two steaks. The fish took about 25 minutes to cook. The dill and lemon were perfect and my guy (who is iffy about fish sometimes) liked it too. I didn't have green onions so I used red, it didn't hurt the finished entree. Plugged this into my fitness app and it came in as 185 calories and 5 carbs per serving using Duke's light mayonaise. Very good, will use this recipe again as we still get such nice red snapper here despite the new limits on them. Will maybe skip the sauce next time.
