    Serves: 4 

    • 4 charlotte or new potatoes, skin on, thinly sliced
    • olive oil as needed
    • 40g butter
    • 4 snapper fillets, skin on
    • 250ml single cream
    • 1 large bunch spinach, leaves picked and roughly chopped
    • 2 tablespoons finely grated ginger
    • 1 dash dry white wine

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat a fan-assisted oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. Arrange sliced potatoes on a baking-parchment lined baking tray, slightly overlapping, to form a scale pattern. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper.
    3. Roast for 5-6 minutes or until potatoes are crisp and golden.
    4. Heat oil and butter in a frying pan over high heat, cook fish, skin side down, for 3 minutes, turn and cook for another 3 minutes or until cooked to your liking.
    5. Place cream, spinach, wine and ginger in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, cook 1-2 minutes or until spinach wilts.
    6. Transfer the cream-spinach mixture to a food processor or liquidiser and process until smooth.
    7. Pour spinach cream onto a serving plate, top with fish, skin side up and carefully turn baking parchment over, so that potato scales sit on top of the snapper.

    Used different ingredients. Any firm white fish can be used in place of schnapper.  -  14 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
