ONE SUMMER when my husband and I were enjoying our first "getaway" in years, we found ourselves stranded in our cabin cruiser with a dead battery.
When hunger set in, my husband rigged up a fishing line, and soon there were two trout sizzling on the portable grill.
We eventually made it home all right...and kept the recipe we'd devised.

“This easy and delectable recipe actually converted me to a fish lover,” writes Geraldine Buba from Palos Hills, Illinois. “It was given to me by a fishmonger decades ago and is frequently requested by family and friends. Even those who don’t like fish like this recipe!”
TIP: Tilapia or other white fish make easy substitutions for the orange roughy fillets in Geraldine’s recipe.
"I got the idea for this recipe from my brother-in-law, Brett, a fabulous 'experimental' cook," says Katherine Nelson of Palmdale, California. "Even the pickiest of eaters will crave more of this dish, so you might want to double the recipe!"
This is one of our favorite recipes. It's quick, easy and delicious. Just serve with a side salad, biscuits and mixed fruit for dessert. We like it a lot for Christmas Eve. —Jan Wilkins, Blytheville, Arkansas
"I frequently serve this flavorful combination of fish, vegetables and cheese over a bed of rice," writes Sally Davis of Warren, Pennsylvania. "It's quick to assemble, and the foil packets make cleanup a breeze."
"I used this recipe often when I cooked for the 'Meals on Wheels' program in our hometown," writes Helen Sandsbraaten of Naicam, Saskatchewan. "The salmon is mildly seasoned with lemon and tarragon, and it's quick to make."
