BAKED FISH WITH FRESH HERBS
In a small bowl, combine garlic, onion, oil, lemon or lime juice, basil, and paprika, blending well.
Arrange fish fillets in a 10 x 6 x 2-inch baking dish/pan lightly coated with non-caloric vegetable cooking spray. Evenly pour garlic mixture over fish. Bake, uncovered, in a preheated moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. May place fish under the broiler, about 6 inches from heat source, for 2 to 3 minutes to lightly brown just before serving, if desired.
Sprinkle each serving with minced parsley and garnish each with thin lemon or lime wedges or slices. Pass salt and pepper to taste.
Variations: Omit basil. Add 1 large sprig fresh thyme or oregano or several stems fresh cilantro to garlic mixture; remove just before serving.
Add 2 tablespoons dry white wine to garlic mixture.
Omit fresh herbs, except parsley for garnish; add ½ to 1 teaspoon dried fines herbs to garlic mixture.
