Ingredients
  • 4 (6-ounce) scrod fillets, skin on ( halibut is a good substitute)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup capers (preferably in salt), rinsed
  • 1 1/2 large lemons, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
Directions

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Pat the fish dry. Sprinkle the fish with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and let stand 10 minutes at room temperature.

Chop half of the capers and mix with the unchopped capers. Arrange half of lemon slices in 1 layer in an 8-inch square glass baking dish and arrange fish fillets in a single layer over the lemon slices. Top with all of capers, remaining lemon slices, and 3 tablespoons parsley, then pour oil over fish. Bake in middle of oven, uncovered, until fish just flakes and is cooked through, about 1 to 1 1/4 hours.

Serve fish with some of lemon slices, capers, and oil spooned over. Sprinkle with remaining tablespoon parsley.
