  3. Place the fish into a ceramic or glass baking dish.

  4. Pour the white wine into the baking dish.

  5. Place the fish into the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or just until the fish is barely cooked through.

  6. Remove the fish from the oven and set aside to cool to room temperature.

  7. Peel the potatoes and cut each potato into three pieces.

  8. Place the potatoes, salt and water into a small pot.

  9. On medium heat, cook the potatoes until fork tender (about 20 minutes).

  10. Remove the potatoes from the water and allow for 5 minutes.

  11. Combine the onion, garlic and butter in a small sauté pan.  

  12. Sauté over low heat until the onions are cooked through.

  13. Remove the onions from the heat and set aside to cool to room temperature.

  17. Gently fold together the fish mixture until well combined.

  18. Let the fish mixture rest for 30 minutes.
