My husband has a salmon and scalloped potato dish he likes to make on the BBQ during the summer, he decided to try and make an indoor version of it for winter, and it tastes even better than the original!
This is a true gourmet meal, and well worth the effort to prepare! I've included substitutions that we've tried and liked, as well.
I call it a French-Canadian dish, by the way, because my husband, Marc, is French-Canadian, and he created it. :-)
Place fillets in casserole dish, pour just enough oil over them to coat. Add lemon juice. Sprinkle a light coating of salt, pepper, and garlic powder over the fillets. If you need to layer the fillets to fit them into the dish, repeat this process with each layer.
Peel, wash, and thinly slice potatoes while fish soaks in the oil/juice mixture.
Melt 1/2 cup of butter or margarine in a deep skillet or wok. Add 1/4 cup olive oil and onion; saute' onions until clear. Add the fillets, and pour the juice over them. Cook over medium heat, about one minute each side. Place in a shallow glass baking dish. Using a slotted spoon, layer some of the onions on top of the fish. Remove leaves from thyme sprigs, sprinkle over fillets. Set aside.
Add potatoes to butter/oil/juice/onion mixture. Fry on medium heat until nicely browned, about 5 minutes. Place the slices standing on edge in the baking dish with tongs and pour the contents of the skillet into the casserole dish. Use half the cheese to space out the potatoes, so they aren't all crushed together. Cover and bake at 400 degrees for about 30-45 minutes, (check after 30) until potatoes are nearly cooked through. Put baking dish with fish in it in the oven beside potatoes, bake for about 15 more minutes.
Remove from oven, sprinkle remaining cheese over potatoes, cover and let sit 5 minutes. Serve fish and potatoes with vegetable side of your choice. Enjoy!
