This is a delicious and easy recipe! I've made it several times now and it always gets raves.
The first time I made it my filets were too thick to roll so I just put some of the sauce/spinach/cheese mix in the bottom of the baking pan, then placed the fish on top and covered with a bit more of the sauce and spinach. That's been my method since then! I did not salt the fish as the feta is so salty. Great recipe! Thanks!
