NOTE: Use as much spinach as you can pack into your baking dish because spinach does shrink quite a bit.

 

1. First, pack spinach onto the bottom of a baking dish. Top with butter slices and layer the fish fillets over the top

Very delicious recipe‼️ Seasoned the fish with other seasonings instead of the sauce and didn’t make it as creamy. Looking forward to making it again. Truly enjoyed by family❣️Thanks
