Monkfish Baked with Parsley

 Something about the combination of spicy "green" flavors of parsley perfectly matches the buttery richness of monkfish.

Prep time:  10 minutes
Cook time:  16-20 minutes
Serves:  4

4 TB olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 1/2 to 2 cups parsley, minced
4 monkfish fillets, cleaned1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
2 TB grated Parmesan

Preheat the oven to 400F.

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook the garlic for a couple of minutes or until the garlic begins to tan.  Turn off heat.  Mix in the parsley.

Arrange the monkfish fillets in a baking dish.  Top with the parsley-garlic mixture, and sprinkle the bread crumbs, then the Parmesan, on top.

Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until fish is done.  Distribute fillets to plates, and top with some of the parsley mixture from the baking dish.
