    The Flying Chef's Note:

    Florentine is just the expression given to a dish paired with spinach, so you can have steak Florentine or chicken. I have listed this as fish Florentine rather than stating a particular kind, as I usually make this with sole, but I have made it with cod, and this time I made it with perch. The sauce I think works well with most kinds of firm white fish so take your pick and make your favourite.
