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

"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!"
