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

    Do you cover the casserole with foil? Also, how many does this serve? Thx!

      Hello Lily,
      no, do not cover the casserole with foil.
      It serves approximately 8.

    I was in a “what do I make for supper” slump, then saw this recipe! I had the fish and the spinach(frozen) so I saved it and made it for supper tonight. It was awesome! I didn’t put the Old Bay in, (hubby doesn’t like), didn’t have the Adobe Seasoning but put in a few spices that go into it. Delicious! Thanks for sharing!
