Description

There are three distinctively delicious layers in this gratin dish: Tender sauteed vegetables (garlic, leek, zucchini, and tomato, with basil); poached hake and salmon fillets; and mashed potatoes (made with potatoes that are cooked along with the fish and take on some of their flavor). Oh yeah, and grated cheese is sprinkled all over the top of the casserole to cover, and which melts and turns golden brown during baking.
