I'm always looking for new ways to cook fish.

Absolutely delicious! I served it for dinner earlier in the week - my husband liked it so much I made it again Saturday night for dinner guests. A few modifications : I sautéed shallots along with the garlic and retained them instead of discarding. I also added cherry tomatoes to the spinach and I served it over jasmine rice. My dinner guests gobbled it up!
