1 cup sliced onion
1/2 cup leeks sliced
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 cup light beer
2 table spoons parsley chopped

Melt 2 table spoons butter in a baking dish. Add onion, leek and mix well. Rub fish lightly with salt and pepper and lay over vegetables. Add beer and parsley. Sprinkle Italian breadcrumbs over the top. Cover and cook in preheated oven 325°F 30-40 min or until the fish flakes when tested with fork. Transfer fish to a warmed platter and keep warm. Reduce the stock by one-half and strain.
