  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Use a cooking spray or coat the bottom of a baking pan with vegetable oil.

  3. Pour wine over the fish and dot the fish with the butter or margarine.
  4. Cover with foil and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until the fish flesh turns opaque and begins to flake.

Serves 4.
