Wow! DH and I totally enjoyed this! I omitted the herb stuffing mix---just drizzled the butter on the salted fillets. I did also add a little salt to the spinach when I cooked it. I would have never thought of mixing spinach and mashed potatoes together, but I'm glad someone did and that you posted it here! We will definitely be having this often.
