Set aside the fish and keep warm.
In the same liquid, cook the three potatoes for thirty to forty minutes, or until done.
Drain and peel.
Mash with a fork or in a blender.
Set aside.
Skin the fish and remove the bones.
Heat half cup of the oil.
Place the fish in a pyrex dish (to prevent discoloring) and mash the fish with a wooden spoon in the oil.
Stir in the potatoes, beating until well blended and a smooth paste is formed.
A few drops of cold water may be added to prevent curdling.
Heat the remaining oil and add to the mixture and continue beating until a very smooth paste is formed.
Season with the salt, pepper, lemon juice, garlic.
Stir in the heavy cream or creme fraiche.
Transfer the mixture to the top of a double boiler and place over hot water.
