Method

00:25
 
Pre-heat the oven to 200°c.
Place the fish on an oiled roasting tray and rub/brush the softened butter all over it. Sprinkle with the fish spice and cover with foil.
Place in the oven and allow to bake/roast for 12-15 minutes and then remove the foil. Allow to bake/roast for another 5 minutes or until cooked throughout.
Meanwhile, melt the butter, garlic and lemon juice together in a small saucepan.
Add the cream and mix well (I use my handheld blender at this point but it’s not essential).
Add parsley and pepper to taste.
Serve the fish with a generous spoonful of the lemon-garlic butter and a good sprinkling of capers.
