Pesce Gratinato al Forno

Baked Fish or (Pesce gratinato al forno)

4 frozen fish filets (defrosted according to package instructions-* note, I recommend defrosting the fish under a stream of cold water. It only takes about five minutes)
Juice of one small lemon (about 2 tbsp)
2 small cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
2 tbsp flat leaf parsley (chopped)
4 tbsp breadcrumbs
2tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup of water
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 370 degrees. Place fish on a nonstick baking sheet and top with garlic, parsley, breadcrumbs and salt and pepper. Squeeze on 1/2 of the lemon juice. Mix the remaining lemon juice with water and set aside. Drizzle with olive oil.
Bake fish for 12 minutes. Halfway through baking add the lemon water to the baking sheet, being careful not to pour it directly on the fish.

Serve warm with your favorite sides.
