Made this the first time with Rainbow trout and it was perfect! I've made it a ton of times since then with all types of fish filets, including flounder. Thanks for an amazingly easy, but extremely delicious recipe! A winner for sure!

Made exactly as stated. What a lovely way to serve trout. None of the flavours overpowered the fish. It was all very subtle but worked so well. I served it with a Greek salad. Definite keeper. Made for Photo Tag

Wonderful! Other than substituting whole wheat flour for AP flour and walnut oil for veg oil, I followed the recipe. This takes no time at all and yields a yummy high-protein dish. I served 6oz. (>36 g protein) per person and they cleaned the plates.
