“This sounds simple and tasty! First off, I never peel my potatoes for any recipe I am making. (My family had to get used to it. LOL) Also, don't skimp on the flour and butter, this is such a simple recipe you need to be generous with the ingredients. This comes from The Scandinavian Cookbook by Trina Hahnemann. Posted for ZWT 6.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the potatoes in a large pot of salted water until tender,about 15 to 20 minutes, then drain. Once they are cool enough to handle, peel them.
  2. Rinse the fish in cold water, then coat each one in the flour, patting off the excess.
  3. Melt 5 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet and pan-fry the fish for 5 minutes on each side, or until crisp and golden.
  4. Keep the cooked fish warm while you cook the remainder.
  5. Melt the remaining butter in a non-stick skillet.
  6. Add the potatoes and let them sauté a little before adding the parsley. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Serve immediately with the potatoes, sliced lemon, and dill sprigs.
