How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 375°. In a medium saucepan, combine the water, celery, onion, carrot, 1 parsley sprig and the salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.

Step 2    

Set the fish in an oval baking dish and make 3 crosswise slashes on each side. Stuff the fish with the garlic and the remaining 2 parsley sprigs. Strain the vegetable broth over the fish. Add the wine, bay leaves and olive oil and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes. Serve the fish with the "crazy water."
