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

    Please give the nutritional information for a 1 oz serving. Currently you show it for serving size of 1g which isn’t very much — maybe a tablespoon? Thanks
