A mild lemon sauce accented by fresh mushrooms complements these tender trout fillets from Kathy Kittell of Lenexa, Kansas. "When fish is on sale, I buy plenty to serve to my large brood, because it always gets eaten up right away," she notes.

"I wasn't sure if I cooked the sauce correctly, as it didn't seem thickened while I poured on fillets. However, the taste was out of this world. I served with asparagus and a baked potato. It was easy and delicious. Thanks for sharing!!"
