Baked Fish with Lemon Cream Sauce


This Baked Fish with Lemon Cream Sauce is a firm favorite in my home. It is such a versatile dish to make – you can use any white fish fillet that you like. I tend to use fish like snapper, John Dory or whiting when I make this. It depends on what my fish shop has in stock.

To make this lemony baked fish couldn’t be easier. I start by placing the fish in the bottom of a baking dish. I prepare the sauce by mixing butter, cream, garlic, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a microwave safe jug and I microwave it in two 30 second bursts, stirring between each burst. Then I scatter shallots over the fish and pour the sauce on top. Bake in the oven for ten minutes until the fish is cooked and there you have it!

The BOMB! Easiest baked fish and lemon you could make though the first time I made it I accidently used salted butter and it was wayyy too salty so make sure to buy unsalted unless you want heartburn haha!

Obsessed with this baked fish more than the fish fillets, this isn't too crunchy but it's mouth watering for sure.

Samiya Alires

The mustard doesn't go too well with this but it's not bad, though I think I'll be sticking to the spicy cabbage salad with turkey instead.

Angie Vanbecelaere

Charleston Animas

Fantastic dish for sure, never thought fish could be so delicious but this meal changed my mind for sure.

Adilyn Vanduren

Didn't like how watery the fish looked in the end due to all the heavy cream but it was good.

Shay Nein

This website has the most amazing fish and meaty dinners than any other website I could find, would recommend it for sure.

Mckayla Reed

Didn't add mustard instead I used sourcream to make the sauce instead cause mustard just leaves a weird after taste in my mouth.

Laylah Etuk

Huge crowd pleaser, this fish dinner had my family begging me to make it weekly or pass them the recipe,LOL!

Selina Kollath

Great recipe and simple instructions, doesn't take too long to make this either which is the main reason it's in my top 5.
