Heat a deep fryer to 350 degrees F.

Saute mushrooms in a skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil until soft. Keep warm in pan.

Saute spinach in pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil until soft. Keep warm in pan.

Peel potatoes. Cut off sides of potatoes. Add potatoes to a pot of boiling water with saffron, for color and taste. Boil until tender. Drain.

Season the fish with white pepper and salt on both sides. Heat a non-stick skillet over high heat. Brush fish on both sides with olive oil. Add fish to skillet and sear on both sides, 3 minutes each side.

Using only the white part of the leek, halve lengthwise. Take each half and julienne thinly. Wash and dry. Deep fry in hot oil for 1 to 2 minutes until crisp. Drain on paper towels.
