Preparation : 10 min Cooking : 20 min
230 calories/serving


140 g spinach 5 1/2 cups
2 sole fillets, or haddock 300 g
2 tsp canola oil 10 mL
1/4 onions, finely chopped 50 g
1 carrots, grated 100 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated 14 g

Before you start

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.


  1. Preheat the oven to 205°C/400°F.
  2. Prepare the spinach: Wash and drain briefly then transfer it to a pot or saucepan without adding any water. The water trapped in the leaves after gentle shaking is enough to cook them. Add salt, cover and cook over high heat 2-3 min until the leaves wilt. Transfer the spinach to a colander, press to remove excess water, then put it in a baking dish.
  3. Pat-dry the sole fillets, then arrange them over the spinach.
  4. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-low heat. Finely chop the onion and grate the carrots, then add them to the pan. Sauté 3-4 min, add salt and pepper, then portion them out on top of the fillets. Cover the top with the grated cheese.
  5. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20 min, until golden-coloured. Serve.

I love recipes like this: healthy, simple and fast, wonderfully flavourful and colourful. And frozen spinach can be used to replace the fresh spinach.

We found this recipe to be pretty bland. We will experiment with it to kick it up a notch on the taste scale -- perhaps using a different (or much more) cheese, or using some spicier ingredients.

This recipe has potential. I substituted the parm cheese for mozzarella, but this made it really oily.
