Crunchy Cheesy Fish and Spinach Casserole

Recipe by  

"What a great way to combine all food groups into one casserole dish. So yummy, the kids won't even mind eating their veggies. Also a good meal idea for the working mom; it's simple to put together and cooks quickly in the oven. Substitute any mild white fish for the cod if desired."

FANTABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been saying for the last few days that I wanted some cod & panko, so on the hunt I went...ran across this quick little ditty & was most pleasantly surprised. I didn't have any cheddar cheese, so I used the rest of some 4-cheese (Italian blend) and the rest Asiago cheese instead and when I tell y'all that dish was good!!!!!! Yep, this will be in the rotation.

It was ok. the spinach was a waste as it disintegrated into hard flakes. My kids would not finish the meal as they didn't like the taste. The adults thought the lemon zest and dill did taste good, but imo this recipe needs tweeking.The panko cheese crust didn't stay on well. I would recommend seving it over rice if you managed to make it work for your meal.

Was looking for a recipe for pollock, found this one. Used lime juice instead of lemon because I didn't have a lemon. My husband and grandchildren loved it. The only way my granddaughter likes pollock.

loved the combination of spinach and fish (only we use a lot more spinach). No changes. I did notice that one reviewer said she changed the egg for mayo...........she must have been reviewing a different recipe because no egg listed in this one. I just question this that is all.

This turned out very well although I did not follow the recipe exactly.I am giving 4 stars since I did change the recipe. I did not have a lemon or the fresh dill but I used some old bay seasoning, and some garlic salt, The cheese and bread crumbs make a rich topping which was satisfying and flavorful. Family loved it!
