NOTES : From Chef Erik Maillard of Mark's, The Mark Hotel. Located in the
luxury Mark Hotel off Madison Avenue, Mark's is one of New York's most
elegant dining rooms. Considered a true culinary artist, Erik Maillard
combines classical French training with American-style ingenuity. A native
of the Boulogne-sur-Mer region of France, he was the executive sous-chef at
New York's Le Cirque and Restaurant Raphael and chef de cuisine at Les
Celebrites. Chef's note: "This fish preparation is delicious with red
snapper, orange roughy, or salmon. The secret is not to overcook the fish.
You can 'shoestring' the potatoes on a mandoline [a hand-operated slicer]
or cut them carefully by hand. For extra color and flavor, add black beans
or corn to the succotash."
