Fish from lakes and the Mediterranean have been important food sources throughout Israel’s history, and this simple preparation is typical of the region. Prep tip: Traditionally, fish such as St. Peter’s fish (tilapia), found in the Sea of Galilee, would be used, but you can choose any firm white fish of medium thickness.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
4 4 halibut or cod (or other white fish) fillets (about 5 ounces each)
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter (divided)
1 medium onion (sliced)
1 medium tomato (sliced)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 400˚. Pat fish dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Melt 1/2 tablespoon butter in a small sauté pan. Add onions and cook until slightly softened and lightly browned. Spread cooked onions evenly over the bottom of a baking dish. Arrange fish fillets over onion. Top with tomato slices and sprinkle with chopped dill. Dot with remaining butter, and drizzle with lemon juice. Bake for 15 minutes, or until fish is cooked and flakes easily with a fork.
