    Preheat oven to 400ºF. In a small saucepan on medium heat, melt butter, then whisk in cornstarch. Allow to cook 30 seconds, then slowly add half & half. When mixture begins to simmer, turn to low and add parmesan. Whisk occasionally for 3-5 minutes until mixture thickens. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pat cod dry and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Melt remaining butter in a shallow dish and mix in garlic. Pour the parmesan cream sauce in the bottom of individual au gratin dishes or a baking pan. Place cod on top. Brush cod filets with garlic butter and sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Spritz with olive oil. Bake 25-30 minutes or until the cod reaches an internal temperature of 145ºF. The sauce should be bubbling and the crust golden brown.
