Fish Florentine

Make this recipe really easy by using ready made cheese sauce or a packet cheese sauce mix


(4 people)

  • 4 White Fish fillets (any you like eg cod, haddock or pollock)
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 bag baby spinach leaves
  • Juice of 1 lemon

For Cheese Sauce

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 pint milk
  • Large handful of grated cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4-5
  2. Make cheese sauce by heating the butter and adding the flour.  Let this cook for a few minutes.  Gradually add the milk stirring all the time.  Any lumps should disperse but don’t worry if they don’t as you can pass it through a sieve if all else fails!
  3. When the milk thickens add the grated cheese and some seasoning.
  4. Meanwhile boil a kettle of water, put the spinach in a colander and pour over the boiling water so that the leaves start to wilt. Rinse in cold water and squeeze any excess water out.
  5. Grease a shallow baking dish and add the fish fillets.
  6. Sprinkle the lemon juice over the fish
  7. Cover the fish with the spinach and then pour over the cheese sauce.
  8. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily
Approximate Time
