- 2 lbs. Idaho or Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
- ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
- 1 tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 4 cod fillets or steaks (5 oz. each)
- 1 Tbsp. butter
- ¼ cup chopped parsley
- 4 lemon wedges
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- Toss the potatoes with oil and melted butter, salt, and pepper in a baking pan.
- Bake the potatoes for 30 minutes or until the top is brown and crisp and the inside soft.
- When the potatoes are done, lay the fish on top, dot with butter, and turn the oven to broil.
