Aunt Carol's Spinach and Fish Bake


"Simple, easy fish recipe. Any white fish will do! And even the kids will eat up the spinach! (My four year old loves this dish!) This recipe was passed on by my Aunt and was a little bit of this, a little bit of that - so tweak the ingredients to your liking!"

The temperature and cook time is way low for this recipe - I gave it 30 mins at 350 degrees, and it was certainly not overcooked. That said, this is a really great combination of flavors, and is...
