We caught a lot of trout this summer to put in the freezer. So far I've been making it the old tradional way...pan fried. Not any longer! This is delicious. Gives a whole new flavor to fish. I used 4 TBS of the breadcrumbs, but left everything else the same. The cream sauce was so good! We sprinkled it with more lemon at the table. I will definitely use this recipe a lot!! Thanks a bunch Chuck!

This is the perfect dish for company because it is no fuss, no muss and looks impressive when it comes bubbling out of the pan. I would make a couple slight adjustments next time though -- more dill and more breadcrumbs over the top (enough to more or less coat the top of each piece of fish, rather than just a sprinkling). I served this as part of a summer lunch, with a few different salads on the side.

This is a very easy recipe to make. I made it for myself so I scaled it down to 1 person and I think I added a little too much cream, but none the less it was good. As in another review, I let it marinade for about an hour and added more dill. A definite keeper. Thanks.
