Pollack Parmentier


Pollack Parmentier
"Parmentier", in French cuisine, means topped or mixed with mashed potato. This fishy version is made with pollack (or another fish, if you prefer), poached, flaked, and mixed with cooked onions, mashed potatoes and a little thyme.

This is then topped with grated cheese and browned in the oven, gratin style.

Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.
Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #1
Poach 800 g fish in 1 litre fish fumet (or, at a push, just use salted water with 1 Bouquet garni) at a gentle simmer until just cooked.

To ensure the fish is perfectly cooked, stick an electronic thermometer into the fish and cook until the temperature reaches 140°F (60°C).

Stage 2 - 5 min.

Take the fish out of the cooking liquid, remove the skin and any bones, then flake (break up) the flesh.

Set aside.

Stage 3 - 4 min.

Prepare and slice 2 onions finely (a mandolin is the ideal tool for this).

Stage 4 - 7 min.

Pour 3 tablespoons olive oil into a saucepan on medium heat. When hot, add the sliced onions.

Stage 5

Salt and pepper, then cook for about 5 minutes - the onions don't need to brown.

Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

Stage 6 - 5 min.

Peel 800 g cooked potatoes (I'm using rattes here).

Stage 7 - 5 min.

Bake for 20 minutes, just until the cheese on the top has melted and is nicely browned. Finish browning under the grill if necessary.

Remarks

As mentioned above, you can use other kinds of fish, so this is a chance to choose something cheap and, above all, in season.
