Fish Florentine

Another favourite recipe from my Gramma, I even have her hand written recipe card. :-) This is a great twist on fish, especially if you have a picky eater.

Recipe

Step 1:



Heat up some oil and minced garlic in a pan, wilt a big bunch of spinach, I like baby spinach, but any is fine.

Step 2:



Make your cheese sauce by heating 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat, when melted add 2 tablespoons of floor, let it bubble for a minute than add 2/3 Cup milk, 1/3 Cup heavy cream and fresh ground pepper. If you don't have heavy cream just use all milk. When heated through and thickened add a cup or so of shredded cheese - mozzarella or swiss work well.

Step 3:



When spinach is wilted, layer on the bottom of a casserole dish.

Step 4:



Top spinach with fresh or frozen white fish, I used sole.

Step 5:



Cover fish with cheese sauce and top with extra shredded cheese.

Step 6:
Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes.



Family Thoughts: 


We all love this, even the kids! Adding the cheese sauce is the perfect way to introduce a picky eater to fish.

  2. I love fish but hate spinach so I'd have to come up with something else there, probably broccoli. Sounds like a nice meal to me with either pasta or boiled potatoes. What did you serve it with?

    1. I usually serve it with rice, either of these recipes would be perfect:
