    This was very good. I will admit, I made a few changes due to lack of ingredients. I did not have any seafood seasoning so 1st, I floured the fish before cooking. 2nd, I used Kale in place of spinach (fresh), its what I had. And 3rd made up a combination of herbs (parley, basil, tarragon, just a bit of each, i did not measure) and tossed them in some melted unsalted butter.To serve, I topped the kale with the fish (as shown in the picture), then I spread an equal amount of herbs over each fish fillet.This was very good with a side salad and steamed carrots (for the color). Will make again.

    Added shallots and roasted red pepper slices to the spinach. Used a 1/4 c white wine in place of the chicken stock. The dish is wonderful! It was like going into a restaurant. It was pretty on the pate with honey glazed carrots.
