Prepare & roast the potatoes:
1 Prepare & roast the potatoes:

Remove the ghee from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Large dice the potatoes. Place on a sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and half the spice blend. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 25 to 27 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the glaze:
2 Prepare the remaining ingredients & make the glaze:

While the potatoes roast, cut off and discard any stems from the fennel; halve, core, and thinly slice the bulb. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Combine in a bowl. Pick the mint leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Halve the orange crosswise; squeeze the juice into a medium bowl. Add the verjus and 1/4 cup of water; stir to combine.

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the ghee and a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish, skin side down. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Flip and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
