1 tsp dill
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
1 Lb tilapia fillets or enough for four servings
2 Tbs butter
1 lemon
1 bay leaf
1 bunch green onions

Heat oven to 450F.
Combine dill, salt, coriander, pepper and cayenne and sprinkle it on both sides of tilapia fillets. Spread 1 Tbs butter in the bottom of a shallow baking dish big enough to hold fillets in one layer. Peel the yellow part of the lemon rind off with a potato peeler and put the rind in the baking pan.
Add the bay leaf. Chop the white part of the onions and sprinkle them in the pan. Squeeze lemon juice into pan. Pour 1 cup water in the pan, or enough to make a thin layer. Put fish in the pan and bake for five minutes. It should be opaque and flake easily. If it isn't, cook another minute or two. Put fish on plates. Pour pan juices into a small pan, not allowing lemon rind or bay leaf to go in. Bring to a boil and reduce to 1/4 cup. Remove from heat and beat remaining tablespoon of butter into the liquid. Spoon over tilapia. If desired, chop green onion tops and sprinkle over fish. Serve with rice and sugar snap peas.
