Cook the Potatoes
Cut potatoes into large evenly-sized chunks.
Bring a medium pot with potato chunks and enough water to cover to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.
Reserve ¼ cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.
Add potato cooking water, cheese spread, butter, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to pot. Mash until smooth. Cover and set aside.
While potatoes boil, roast green beans.
Roast the Green Beans
Trim ends off green beans.
Place green beans on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until bright green and tender, 12-14 minutes.
While green beans roast, prepare remaining ingredients.
Prepare Mahi-Mahi and Tartar Sauce
Mince preserved lemon, including rind.
Thinly slice chives.
In a mixing bowl, combine preserved lemon, mayonnaise, and chives. Set aside.
Halve mahi-mahi and pat dry.
Heat Oil and Prepare Batter
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add canola oil. Let heat, 5 minutes.
While oil heats, in another mixing bowl, combine tempura mix and 5 Tbsp. water until a batter forms, slightly thinner than pancake batter.
Fry Fish and Finish Dish
Line a plate with a paper towel.
Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of batter to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.
Working in batches if necessary, dip mahi-mahi in batter, coating completely and letting excess drip off. Lay carefully in hot oil and cook until mahi-mahi reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-5 minutes per side.
Transfer mahi-mahi to paper towel-lined plate.
