To serve
Plate 6 pieces of aspaqragus from 6 o'clock to 12 o'clock and fan out to cover the top of the plate. Place 4 hot potatoe cubes on the left side of the plate and four on the right side. Next place the fish at the bottom of the plate over the asparagus. Shingle the two pieces of fish so that they overlap. Next place 2 oz. of crabmeat on top of the fish and top with 2 oz. of hollandaise sauce. Finish by sprinkling a pinch of chopped parsley over the fish and around the plate.
