For dinner last evening, we had a salad (green leaf lettuce, celery, green onions, mushrooms, and cluster tomatoes), toasted garlic bread, and trout fillets. The trout was the star of the meal. It was given us by friend and reader, Frank. I sautéed it lightly in extra-virgin olive oil, seasoned with lemon pepper and dill weed. He caught the trout—as witnessed by the photograph below!
