  • Lime Island Fillets:

Method

Italian-Dill Fillets

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Pour the vinaigrette into a 1 cup measure. Stir in the dill. Arrange the fillets in a single layer in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
  2. Pour the sauce over the fish and bake, uncovered, until the fish is opaque throughout and flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 12 minutes. Carefully place a fillet on each serving plate, spoon some of the dressing over the fish and serve at once.


Lime Island Fillets

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Remove the zest from half of the lime, if desired. Cut the lime in half, and set aside. Pour the salad dressing into a small bowl. Squeeze the juice of the zested half of the lime into the dish, and mix well. Set the remaining lime half aside. Arrange the fillets in a single layer in a 13 x 9 inch baking dish. Spread 2 Tbsp dressing mixture over each fillet.
  2. Bake, uncovered, until the fish is opaque throughout and flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the remaining lime half into 4 slices and set aside. Carefully place a fillet on each serving plate, spoon some of the sauce on top and garnish with a lime slice. Serve at once.
