Parmesan Crusted Fish with Creamy Dill Sauce


  • Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Scale
  • FOR THE SAUCE
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, plus more for serving
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • FOR THE FISH
  • 4 filets (4-6 oz each) firm thick white fish such as halibut
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • pepper and lemon wedges, to serve

Instructions

  1. For the sauce, combine the sour cream, mayo, cream, lemon zest, garlic, and dill in a small bowl. Taste, and add salt, pepper, and more dill as you’d like.
  2. Set the sauce aside while you prepare the fish.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  4. Pat both sides of the fish dry with paper towels, and sprinkle both sides with salt. Place the fish on a broiler pan with rack, or on a baking rack set inside a baking sheet.
  5. Combine the melted butter, panko, and parmesan in a bowl with a fork. Add a big sprinkle of pepper and stir together.
  6. Divide the panko mixture evenly on top of fish and press lightly to form a crust on the top of each piece of fish.
  7. Bake the fish for 10-15 minutes (depending on how thick your fish is) until fish is cooked through and flaky and the crust has browned.
  8. Spoon some of the dill sauce over the fish to warm it, then top the whole mess with extra fresh dill.
  9. Serve the fish with extra dill sauce and lemon wedges.
  10. People will love you—promise.
