Start first to boil the potatoes and set the oven to 220 degrees celcius.
Then start breading the fish. Cut the fish into serving size pieces. Put flour (with the spices), egg and crushed dry bread into 3 separate bowls. First dip the fish into the flour, then the egg, and the the bread. Make sure all sides of the fish are covered. Repeat dipping into the egg and the bread if not satisfied after the first time. Fry the fish in butter or oil for about 2 minutes on each sides in a medium heated frying pan. Be careful when turning the fish in the pan.
Put the fried fish into a ovenproof dish (with oil) and then have them in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Now, make a thick white sauce. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the white flour and the milk while stirring. Let it simmer while you put in the carrot pieces. Turn thereafter the heat down right beneath boiling point, such that the sauce doesn't burn and thicken more. Add some salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. Cook the carrots until soft all the way through.
Finally, fry the ham for 1 to 2 minutes on each side in a dry, warm frying pan.
The dish is ready to serve.
