Makes 4 servings


  • 4 large or 8 small whiting fillets, skinned
  • Flour, for dredging
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sherry or chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • Cooked asparagus spears, for garnish


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Lightly coat the whiting fillets with flour.

Heat the oil in an ovenproof skillet. Brown the fish for 2 minutes on each side. While the fish is cooking, add the chopped garlic, lemon juice and sherry or chicken stock. Let that cook down for a moment. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the fish and put the entire pan into the oven for 5 minutes.

Remove the pan from the oven, add the cooked asparagus spears and return the pan to the oven to heat through for a moment more.

Place the asparagus on a serving plate next to the fish and cover with the garlic and lemon juice pan drippings.
