Top Review by Chrissyo

Oh Boy!! This is great dish. I thought it rather appropriate dish to serve for the 4 th July. We had our own personal "fireworks" at the table. The presentation of this dish does not out weigh the flavour of the meal. Just delish. The lemon-onion baste is great. Please keep the sugar in the baste folks when you cook this recipe. It is a must!! I cooked trout fillets and used Cognac to "burn" the fish, so to speak. ;-) I had an abundance of lemon thyme so I used that to cover the platter and then covered the fish with the mixture of herbs. It is such a simple dish to prepare and everyone at the table thought I have gone to a lot of trouble. Thank you for posting this recipe. P.S. Mille® ™, the last time I ate Trout was 25 years ago and I ended up in hospital with food poisoning for a week. So a personal thank you, your recipe got me back to eating Trout again and made me realise what I have been missing by leaving trout out of my diet. Hugs!!
