"No idea where I got this recipe, but it was easy & tasty. Add some rice and you've got a complete meal. I made this with seabass...delicious...but use your favorite fish. When I posted it on a recipe website that has changed hands and I no longer use, it good excellent reviews. Everyone thought the spinach took it over the top."

This is a great fish dish that is different from our usual - we served it with tiny potatoes. I used less spinach and more mushrooms than specified and this was enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing!
