Merluza en salsa verde

This is especially dedicated to Jeff. Although it seems complicated, in fact it's a very easy recipe. The only thing you need is a very fresh and very good hake or any other kind of fish and, most important don't overcook fish . Near the coast of Galicia there's fantastic hake and we cook it in many ways, but this is one of my favourites.
Wash and salt fish. Beat egg and dip each fish slice into it, then coat with flour and fry it in olive oil turning it to slightly brown both sides, over medium heat for about three minutes. Place the hake in glass oven dish.
Heat 1/2 cup olive oil in saucepan and fry the sliced onion. Stir until tender. Crush garlic together with a pinch of salt and a spoonful of snipped parsley. Add one spoonful of water.
In a saucepan, pour two or three spoonful of flour and stir for a minute medium heat. Add the crushed garlic, white wine, 1/2 glass of water and laurel. Bring this sauce to boil for about 5 to 7 minutes. Then, pour this sauce over the hake and cook it for about 3 minutes (just bring it to boil), low heat. Remove from heat and sprinkle the remaining parsley. Serve immediately. White wine, two candles and... tell me about it, Jeff.
