7 Tbsp
butter, divided
2 lb
firm white fish fillets (red snapper, grouper, cod, amberjack)
4 medium
baking potatoes, peeled and cut into julienne strips
3 Tbsp
all-purpose flour
2 tsp
dry mustard
2 c
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
1 1/2 c
sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


1Grease a 13x9x2 inch baking dish with 2 tablespoons butter. Arrange fish in the baking dish. Set aside.
2Place potato strips in a large saucepan with water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes or until the potato is almost tender. Drain well, pat dry with paper towels. Return the potato strips to the saucepan. Add 2 tablespoons butter, tossing gently until butter melts. Set aside.
3Melt the remaining 3 tablespoons butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; add flour and mustard, stirring until smooth. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add the milk; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thickened and bubbly. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
4Spoon the sauce evenly over the fish in the baking dish; arrange the potato strips over the sauce. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until the cheese melts and the mixture is hot and bubbly. Serve immediately.
