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

    Amazing! Had to improvise…didn’t have Monterey Jack cheese…used cheddar, no sour cream….just miracle whip…..absolutely delicious!

      Thank you for the feedback!

    This is a wonderful recipe. I didn’t have sour cream on hand, nor did I have spinach. I used cottage cheese in place of sour cream, and I shredded and drained a zuchini from the garden in place of the spinach..threw in a few chopped and seeded jalapenos… This recipe did not need an alterations, I only did to suit what I had on hand. Fabulous flavor. Easy. I cook…ALOT. This is a 5 star recipe, easy, economical, and delicious.

    I have made this dish several times. As is and with some modifications due to shortage or missing ingredients.
    It is “to die for” delicious.
