  • 4 skinless plaice fillets, about 140g/5oz each
  • 350g tub carbonara or cheese sauce
  • a handful of flaked almonds

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4/fan 160C. Tip the spinach into a large hot pan, shake in 1 tbsp water and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Squeeze out any liquid. Or, if you have a microwave, pierce both bags of spinach and cook them together on Medium (500W) for 3 minutes, until the spinach is just wilted - it's more convenient but takes a couple of minutes longer.

  2. Butter a baking dish and spread the spinach out on the bottom. Lay each plaice fillet out flat on a chopping board, skinned-side up, and season with salt and pepper. Roll each one up like a Swiss roll and arrange on the spinach.

  3. Spoon the sauce over the fish and spinach so they are well covered. Scatter over the almonds and bake for 20 minutes, until the fish is cooked and everything is golden and gently bubbling. Serve with boiled potatoes.

This was a very quick and easy dish to make, even though I made my own sauce from scratch. I microwaved the spinach, so there was very little water to squeeze out, and the whole meal was prepared and on the table within 30 minutes. It was tasty and the fish and cheese sauce worked really well. However, although I love raw spinach in a salad, I just can't get on with it as a cooked vegetable. For that reason, I'm not sure that I would make it again.

Very nice dish quick and easy, even with homemade sauce. Ooops can't seem to get the stars to work but I would rate it with a five.

Really loved this quick and easy dish. If its low fat too then that is a bonus although I guess it depends on what sauce you use. Missed out the almonds as other half not keen on them. Yummy - well definately make again!

Delicious. Didn't use the almonds as I don't like them. Has become a family favourite.

I've used both a mushroom alfredo sauce and a sun-dried tomato alfredo sauce (as well as a plain one) and it's all worked wonderfully.

The taste of the fish with spinach and cheese sauce is absolutely fantastic. It's so quick to do although I made my own sauce. My husband who is a fan of plaice really enjoyed this dish even though I used frozen fish.
