  3. Layer the spinach in the bottom of a baking dish. Arrange the halibut steaks over the spinach, and season with salt and pepper. Pour the cheese sauce mixture over the halibut.
  4. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

This was a really good recipe. I lightened it up a bit. I used skim mik and 2% cheese, and I omitted the water (since the skim milk is thin to begin with) and added salt and pepper to the milk mixture. I also used talapia and fresh spinach. I sauteed the spinach first a bit, but I don't think I will bother next time. It came out great! Thanks!

I made this recipe for my family and it was DE-lish. I used fresh spinach instead of frozen, only because that's what I had on hand. It turned out great. I will definitely make this again. Also, it was very easy to make. The family really enjoyed it!

This was so easy to make. My husband's comment was 'This is like a great meal at a great restaurant!! How'd you do that?!' (and I'm NOT a bad cook!!)

Excellent. I've never made cheese sauce this way before but it turns out OK and is much quicker than the roux method.

Great recipe. I used halibut fillets instead of steaks and fresh spinach as is. This would work well with cheaper fish also. I had twice as much cheese sauce than was required so saved till the next day for Tuna Mornay. I will never make cheese sauce any other way - I'm so grateful to have learned this method. I cut the cooking time by at least half.

I made this for my family tonight and they really didn't enjoy it. I think the cheese to spinach/fish ratio was too much, it would have probably been better if I had used the sauce sparingly since it was really rich.

Outstanding! I made this tonight and it was wonderful. It was a great way to get the kids to eat spinach. Make sure to drain the spinach well before you line the pan, otherwise it will water everything down.
