  • 4 fillets white fish, such as trout or red snapper, about 2 pounds total
  • 8 ounces crème fraîche
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

    Lay the fillets in an ovenproof baking dish or on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Spoon the sauce generously over the fillets, ensuring that the fish is completely covered.
