Cajun Tilapia with dill sauce

I tried this recipe last night and wow it was good. Definitely a great change to our usual fish dish.

Cajun Tilapia

4 fillets tilapia
salt and pepper to taste
Cajun seasoning, cover both sides of fish with med coat
2 lemons, sliced (reserve portion for sauce)

Dill Sauce

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Season the tilapia fillets with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning on both sides. Arrange the seasoned fillets in a single layer in the baking dish. Place a layer of lemon slices over the fish fillets. I usually use about 2-3 slices on each piece so that it covers most of the surface of the fish. Bake uncovered for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.While the fish is baking, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic powder, lemon juice and dill in a small bowl chill until ready to serve. Serve with tilapia.
