Pollock Baked(Seelachfillet Baked)

First time i came to Germany, i started looking for a fish that was common to the area. After sometime i found pollock/Seelachs. I tried to cook them in several ways , sometimes i tried to fry them, sometimes i steamed them but it was best only when i baked them. I tried baking it several ways and in this post i will describe one of the easiest , quick and tasty way to treat Pollocks before they are on your plate. My son (1.5 Years old) likes it very much. Am happy for his choice since this fish is extremely light and nutritious. I am posting this on the request of my friend who is in Mauritius and wants a fish recipe.
