Ingredients

 

        2 tbsp. margarine or butter;

        1½ lb. halibut, haddock, or cod

        Salt and pepper

        1 c. milk

Sauce ingredients:

        2 tsp. cornstarch

        2 tbsp. milk

        2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

        1 tsp. lemon juice.

Instructions

Step 1:
Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Step 2:
Smear margarine or butter on the bottom and sides of a deep baking dish and lay fish in the bottom. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and pour milk over all.

Step 3:
Cover dish with foil and bake on the middle oven rack for 40 minutes. If you are not making the sauce, fish is now ready to serve.

Step 4:
When fish is cooked, remove the pan from the oven. With a spoon or baster, draw off all the liquid into a small saucepan. (Turn down the oven to 200°F and return fish to oven to keep warm.)

Step 5:
Bring liquid in the saucepan to a boil over moderate heat.

Step 6:
In a cup, mix cornstarch and milk together to make a smooth, thin paste. Gradually pour cornstarch paste into boiling liquid, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Add parsley and lemon juice. Pour sauce over fish and serve immediately.
