    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling  on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice lengthwise. Thinly slice the scallions. In a large bowl, combine the sliced cabbage, sliced peppers, and sliced scallions.

    Cook & mash the potatoes
    2 Cook & mash the potatoes

    Add the diced potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add the buttermilk, cheese curds, and butter. Using a fork, mash to your desired consistency. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Make the slaw
    3 Make the slaw

    Meanwhile, to the bowl of prepared cabbage mixture, add the vinegar, sugar, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Set aside to marinate,  stirring occasionally, at  least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Cook the fish
    4 Cook the fish

    Meanwhile, pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). In a large pan (nonstick,  if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat.

    *An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.
