Recipe by Chef Kate
According to Dr. Andrew Weil, this simple fish dish is quite elegant with its subtle flavor of rosemary. Pair this entree with steamed asparagus and a large green salad with tomatoes for a lovely and healthy meal.

I thought this was fantastic, and not too difficult to make (although not as quick as everyone else has said). I used fresh caught speckled trout, which I thought worked well. If you're serving to kids, you might want to leave out the rosemary - my kids did not like it as much as I did. I soaked the grated potatoes in salt water for awhile to help draw out the starch and water, then drained them and poured them out on paper towels to dry. I added some grated onion (also drained on paper towels) and minced garlic to the crust for flavor. It came out perfect!
- 12 ounces cod fish fillets, halved (or halibut)
- 1 potato, about 5 ounces
- salt and black pepper
- 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary (or 1/4 teaspoon dried, crushed)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Directions See How It's Made
- Rinse the fish under cold running water and pat dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
- Peel the potato and grate on the large holes of a grater.
- Squeeze excess water out of the potato by pressing between sheets of paper towel.
- Season the potato with salt, pepper and rosemary (if using fresh, chop it very fine; if using dried, crush) and press it around the fish.
- Heat a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat and add olive oil.
- Gently slide the fish into the pan and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.
- Turn fish over, using two spatulas, and cook for 3 to 5 minutes more or until potatoes are golden and fish is done.
