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. Add parsley and pepper to taste.

Serve the fish with a generous spoonful of the lemon-garlic butter and a fresh salad or creamy mash.
