At the beginning of the summer I purchased a parsley herb plant. And the sucker took off. I now have a veritable jungle of parsley. So I have to use it up before the Fall hits our area. This recipe is one of those efforts. I’ve used parsley for everything, so why not fish fillets embedded in the stuff? You probably could do the same recipe with chicken or lamb, even steaks. You would just have to modify the baking procedure so it accommodates  chicken, lamb or beef.

This recipe goes well with any white, firm fleshed fillets, be it haddock, cod, turbot, perch, pollock, ext. With your favorite side dish, be it potatoes, vegetables, rice, couscous, or even pasta, it can’t be beat.
