    I made this, using Swai, for a date-night-in. It was so good! I sauteed the onion with the mushrooms, and a little minced garlic, before adding the rest of the ingredients. Since I halved the recipe, I used 1 pkg of frozen spinach and a big handful of fresh (to get rid of it.) It was just right. Served it with a twice-baked potato. My boyfriend raved about the whole meal!

    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.

    Very nice meal! I love the spinach in it--very good flavor, and gets the veggies in without too much trouble! I used canned mushrooms---it's what I had on hand. Served it with oven-baked/fried potatoes---as long as the oven's running, use it up! Good recipe!

    We enjoyed this quite a bit. I also used halibut, although I would like to try it again with swordfish when I get an opportunity to splurge. I also cut back to 2 boxes of spinach. I also halved the butter (1/2 cup is A LOT of butter! I didn't even use what I prepared!) and the lemon juice. I might try it with some stronger herbs/seasonings next time, but the flavor here was very pleasant. I served it with plain brown rice, drizzling a bit of the lemon butter over top. This was so simple too! I doubt it took me more than 15 minutes of actual work to make dinner last night! The longest part was thawing the spinach! Thanks Karen! I will be making this again, trying different kinds of fish in the future (I'm not overly fond of halibut, but it's cheap).
