Sole fillets baked with spinach and cheese.

A good way to introduce kids to fish.

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.

Can't really taste the sole in this dish, but it was good and unique. Grease the baking dish, or put a piece of greased tinfoil underneath for quick clean-up.

Due to a dairy allergy, I used Daiya Cheddar Cheese Substitute instead of Parmesan Cheese. But you can also toast 1/4 cup sesame seeds and blend with 1/4 cup nutritional yeast to make a mock parmesan cheese. I used garden fresh baby carrots.. yummy! The Basa fillets have a nice flavour. If using frozen fish, sprinkle a pinch of celery salt on it before putting it in the oven to bring out the flavour a little bit.

I had salmon in th house, and followed all other steps. Turned out great and everyone loved it, even my 3 and 6 year old.

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.
