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.

Wonderful dish!! For the fish, I used cod and it was a great choice that went well with the spinach. For the mushrooms, I choice standard white button mushrooms, but I bet this would be great with cremini, too. I really like recipes like this where, for the same effort, you get a main dish and a side vegetable. I didn't make any changes to the recipe, but I did have to scale back the spinach. I normally get frozen spinach in 10-oz packages, but my local grocery store now offers only 12-oz packages. So I decided to use two 12-oz packages of frozen spinach, and it worked out quite well. Thanks, Karen. It's a great dish that we all liked a lot.
