  1. Heat oven to 350°F Coat a small baking dish (big enough to just hold fish filets) with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Cook the sweet potatoes in boiling, salted water for about 10 minutes or until just tender when pierced with a knife.
  3. Meanwhile, mix together the butter with the garlic, harissa, lemon zest, cilantro, salt and pepper.
  4. When the potatoes are ready, drain thoroughly, mash with the ginger and salt and pepper; keep warm.
  5. Place the fish in baking pan, season with salt and pepper, then spread half the butter mixture over each fillet. Bake for about 8 minutes until just cooked through.
  6. Serve with the mashed sweet potatoes.
