No idea where I got this one, but it was easy & tasty. Add some rice and you've got a complete meal. I made this with seabass...delicious...but use your favorite fish.

Very nice meal! I love the spinach in it--very good flavor, and gets the veggies in without too much trouble! I used canned mushrooms---it's what I had on hand. Served it with oven-baked/fried potatoes---as long as the oven's running, use it up! Good recipe!

We enjoyed this quite a bit. I also used halibut, although I would like to try it again with swordfish when I get an opportunity to splurge. I also cut back to 2 boxes of spinach. I also halved the butter (1/2 cup is A LOT of butter! I didn't even use what I prepared!) and the lemon juice. I might try it with some stronger herbs/seasonings next time, but the flavor here was very pleasant. I served it with plain brown rice, drizzling a bit of the lemon butter over top. This was so simple too! I doubt it took me more than 15 minutes of actual work to make dinner last night! The longest part was thawing the spinach! Thanks Karen! I will be making this again, trying different kinds of fish in the future (I'm not overly fond of halibut, but it's cheap).

This is a great dish! I used 2 halibut steaks and cut the spinach down to 2 boxes. Everything else was kept the same. It's not unusual to pair fish with butter, lemon and dill but the spinach mixture took it to another level. I loved the breadcrumbs! This is a wonderful way to add fish and veggies into your diet. Thank you for posting such a great recipe, Karen! I will be making this often. :)
