This delicious, sophisticated dish takes inspiration from the vibrant ingredients of southern France’s Provence region, like the juicy tomatoes and briny niçoise olives that bake atop our wild Alaskan pollock and sliced potatoes. Before baking, we’re boiling the potatoes with fragrant saffron, another favorite of the region.
