Baked Lemon Cod (or Chicken) with Shredded Potatoes

This is one of those one pot meals that can be made easily within 45 min, less if you buy packaged hashbrowns. The picture in the blue casserole is the chicken, both were delicious and definitely made it to the recipe list for my family.
1 lb cod fish, fillets 
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons lemon juice 
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon white or black pepper
4 medium potatoes, peeled and shredded
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp melted butter
sea salt and pepper

For the potatoes-

Mix butter and olive oil and toss shredded potatoes in the mixture. Place in 1 qt casserole. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 15 min. While they are baking get the fish (or chicken) ready. If fish fillets are large, cut into serving pieces. Mix butter and lemon juice. In another bowl, mix flour, salt and white pepper.Dip fish into butter mixture; coat fish with flour mixture. Place fish on top of the shredded poatoes and drizzle with a little melted butter or olive oil and sprinkle with paprika. Cook uncovered in 375 degree oven until fish flakes easily with fork, 20-25 minutes. If baking chicken instead of fish it should be easily pierce with a fork.
