  • Toss together potatoes, olive oil, 2 tablespoons herbes de Provence, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper on prepared baking sheet. Roast in preheated oven until potatoes are golden around edges and nearly tender, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, mash butter, mustard, remaining 2 teaspoons herbes de Provence, and 1 teaspoon salt together with a fork in a small bowl. Arrange fish flesh side up, season with salt and pepper, and spread butter mixture evenly on fish.

  • Flip potatoes and arrange around edges of pan to accommodate fish. Add fish to baking sheet, flesh side up, and roast at 375°F until fish is opaque and flaky and potatoes are cooked through, about 10 minutes.
