Potato Crusted Redfish Fillets

  • 6 (6-ounce) Redfish fillets
  • 5 Idaho potatoes, peeled and grated
  • ½ cup of melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 3/4 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup grated Asiago cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced lemon zest

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add grated potatoes, boil for 30 seconds, and then drain in a strainer. Plunge stainer of potatoes into an ice bath and drain immediately. Spread the potatoes on a plate or baking sheet to dry. Toss with melted butter, salt, pepper, cheese, and lemon zest.
