Low-fat food can look just as appealing as heavy entrees. Wrapped around asparagus bundles, these mouthwatering fish fillets are an ideal example. The basil-thyme sauce is an exceptional touch to the lovely dinner.—Jane Shapton, Irvine, California

  1. Wrap each fillet around five asparagus spears; secure with toothpicks. Place in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Cover and bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with onions. Bake, uncovered, 12-15 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork and asparagus is crisp-tender.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the sauce ingredients until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Discard toothpicks from bundles; serve with sauce. Yield: 4 servings.

"This was absolutely horrible. The worst part was the sauce. For lack of a better way to describe it, it tasted like Vick's Vapo Rub smells. Luckily I tasted it before I poured it over the fish. That wasn't great, but it was at least edible. Easy to prepare, but boy was this awful!"
