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.
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1⁄3 lb mushroom, thinly sliced
- 3 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 teaspoons dried dill weed
- 1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 dash pepper
- 4 fish fillets or 4 fish steaks
- 1⁄4 cup lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Melt 1/4 cup of the butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
- Add mushrooms and saute until limp.
- Add onion, dill, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
- Add thawed and drained spinach, mix but do not cook spinach.
- Spray shallow round cake pan with cooking spray (or a similar pan with low sides).
- Spread spinach mixture over bottom.
- Arrange fish on top of spinach.
- Melt remaining butter and add lemon juice.
- Brush fish with lemon butter and bake, uncovered, basting several times with more lemon butter until fish flakes when prodded in the thickest portion with a fork. Cooking time is approximately 10 minutes per inch of fish thickness.
- Remove from oven and pour any remaining lemon butter over fish.
- Serve immediately.
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. :)
