Wonderful! I used salmon fillets and added some fresh dill to the sour cream! This is so easy, I'm embarrased I never thought of it myself! Thanks for posting, this is great for those of us Somersizing!

Yummy! I used 1/2 lb. of thin cod fillets which were done in about 25 minutes. The recipe was fast and easy to make, and I loved the sauce. In fact I have some leftover sauce that I will enjoy tomorrow over green beans. I like to make fish when my DH is away on business, and this recipe is very easy to down-size for one serving.

This dish looked so simple I was worried, but I had everything on hand. I used sole which was quite thin, so it was done in about 20 min. I used 1/2 the butter and low fat sour cream. It came out perfect. I served with couscous and sauted zucchini. I loved this and plan on making it many times. The sauce is soo good. This is elegant enough for company. Thanks for posting.
