- 2 small garlic cloves, minced
- 4 fish fillets (about 6 ounces each) (salmon or whitefish or cod)

Very good, although on the second time around, I used Halibut which took a little longer, but the dish was worth the effort!

Use a extra clove of Garlic and a dab more butter, overall though very good
