1 stick butter
1/4 cup Sherry
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

In a grill non stick pan, add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 3 tablespoon butter, place on hot grill. Wait until  butter melts. then add garlic. Place fish in pan. Turning once to coat all over with butter and garlic mixture. Sprinkle heavilly with Italian flavored bread crumbs, cook fish with grill cover down until top is brown. Baste with butter over bread crumbs. About 6 minutes depending on thickness. Right at the end pour Sherry around fish. Shut off grill and let sit for three minutes.

I bet the sherry at the end really adds flavor. I love the lightness of it - the pasta with all the fresh vegetables and the simple fish - and do love using toasted breakcrumbs - a healthy way to dive into toast!
