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.

Step by step recipe

1 Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #1Poach 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).
5 min.
2 Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #2Take the fish out of the cooking liquid, remove the skin and any bones, then flake (break up) the flesh.

Set aside.
5 min.
3 Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #3Prepare and slice 2 onions finely (a mandolin is the ideal tool for this). 4 min.
4 Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #4Pour 3 tablespoons olive oil into a saucepan on medium heat. When hot, add the sliced onions. 7 min.
5 Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #5Salt 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).
6 Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #6Peel 800 g cooked potatoes (I'm using rattes here). 5 min.
7 Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #7Cut the potatoes into small pieces, then mash coarsly with a fork. 5 min.
8 Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #8Add the fish, onions, thyme, salt and pepper, and mix well. 2 min.
9 Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #9Fill individual ramekins or a large gratin dish.

Top with grated cheese.
3 min.
10 Pollack Parmentier : Photo of step #10Bake for 20 minutes, just until the cheese on the top has melted and is nicely browned. Finish browning under the grill if necessary. 20 min.

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.
