Recipe by Bergy

I found this recipe on the internet - have made several changes, added a couple of things etc. We enjoyed it so I thought that I would post the recipe. You may use any white fish for this recipe - Tilapia would be nice. Cooking time depends on the thickness of your filets

This is a very good recipe. I added some garlic and a bit of grated parmesan cheese and we found it very yummy. I will definitely make it again.
