Pickerel with Lemon Mushroom Sauce

Recipe from

This meal was quite a treat. I try and stay away from cream sauces, but I couldn't help myself this time! Lemon and mushroom...seriously, so good! I served it with some lemon dill potatoes, which was the perfect pairing (in my opinion). You can try this lemon dill potato recipe, if you like. It's very tasty. If you like pickerel and you love mushrooms, this recipe is for you!

What you'll need
1/4 cup All-purpose flour
2 tbsp Fresh chopped dill (or 1 tsp dried)
Pinch salt
Pinch pepper
2 Pickerel fillets, skin on (about 625g)
2 tbsp Butter

Lemon Mushroom Sauce:

1 cup Finely chopped mushrooms
1/4 cup Chopped onions
1 Garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup Whipping cream
1 tbsp Lemon juice
