Tilapia In A Dill Cream Sauce

Prep time: 10-15 minutes

Cook time: 15-20 minutes


  • 6 fish fillets (I used Tilapia)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup diced dill
  • 1 onion cut into half moons
  • 3 garlic cloves diced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup flour (additional 1 tbsp. flour for sauce mixture)
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • ¾ cup milk


  1. Season both sides of the fillet with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet add in enough vegetable oil to coat about 1/3 inch of the bottom of the pan. Let the oil heat up.
  3. In a bowl add in the flour. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Dip each fillet into the flour mixture and place directly into the hot oil. Keeping the heat on medium cook the fish 3-4 minutes on each side (times may vary depending on the thickness of your fillet so be cautious of that).
  5. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate to soak up some of the oil.
  6. In a skillet with high sides add in the unsalted butter. Keeping the heat on medium high let the butter melt.
  7. Add in the onion and cook for several minutes, stirring often until the onions cook down.
  8. Add in the garlic and cook until fragrant.
  9. Add in the flour and cook mixing constantly for about 60-90 seconds.
  10. Add in the heavy cream and milk. Season with salt and pepper and cook stirring constantly until the mixture thickens.
  11. Add in the dill and mix well to combine.
  12. Add the fillets back in and cook for a few minutes to heat the fish through.
  13. Plate and ENJOY!
