Fish with Herbed Bread Crumbs

We try to have fish on a regular basis at our house and my kids LOVE it. This was an easy, delicious recipe!

1 whole wheat English muffin, split
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (or 2 tsp dried)
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves (or ~1/2 tsp dried)
4 halibut fillets or other flaky fish (cod, swordfish), 4-6 oz each
salt and black pepper to taste
2 tbsp butter, softened

1. Preheat the oven to 450. Place the muffin, parsley, and thyme in a food processor and pulse until you have small but not superfine bread crumbs. You want a bit of texture here.

2. Lay the fish on a (greased) baking sheet and season all over with salt and pepper. Smear the tops with a thin layer of softened butter, then press the herbed bread crumbs into the butter so that they adhere to the fish. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the fish is cooked through and flakes with gentle pressure from your finger.
