Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Place the spinach in a large colander in a sink and carefully and slowly pour over a kettleful of hot water to wilt it. Cool again under the cold tap then squeeze out as much liquid from the spinach as possible. Butter a medium gratin dish. Roughly chop the spinach and scatter evenly over the base of the dish. Season the spinach lightly with salt and pepper and lay the haddock fillets, skinned side down on top. Nestle the tomatoes among the haddock fillets.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for the topping, except the breadcrumbs, in a small bowl and season with lots of pepper and a little salt. Dollop and spread the mixture over the fish and spinach. Scatter everything with the breadcrumbs and bake for 30 mins until bubbling and golden. If you like things really grilled finish for a few mins under a hot grill. Serve straight from the dish.

Forgot to buy spinach so used lightly sauteed sliced leeks and mushrooms for base, along with half-fat creme fraiche - delicious.

Brilliant. Really tasty, and simple enough for my partner (who is not a confident cook) to make with ease. Used half fat creme fraiche to make it lighter, and recommend cutting the cherry toms in half to avoid getting hot tomato juice in the eye when tucking in!

This was lovely. I too used river cobbler and mixed smoked and non-smoked.

This was a little too sickly as I think I may have used too much cheese. It needed balancing out with lots of potatoes and veg alongside it.

I just made this and it was really easy. I swapped the creme Fraiche for ricotta as that was all I had but it still tasted great. Will cook again.

Thoroughly enjoyed this, it was really very tasty. Used 4 spring onions and a lot more cheese than the recipe. Fed 3 for supper accompanied by just bread to mop up the juices.

Fabulous recipe and absurdly easy to make! I made it with fresh haddock (didn't see the "smoked" bit when I read the recipe!) and it was absolutely delicious. Wondrous!

To Anne O'Neill - on my computer, once you press "print recipe" you have to select "print target" to get the whole recipe plus picture.

Very tasty and super easy. I ended up using smoked river cobbler form tesco and 300ml of half fat crème fraîche and it worked great. Will be making this one again and again

This was really nice and extremely easy to prepare. For 2 of us I used a 400g of spinach, 2 Tesco Finest undyed smoked haddock fillets, and creme fraiche. In hindsight it was a bit too much spinach, and thicker haddock fillets would have been nicer as these dried out a little in the oven, but I can't fault this recipe at all.

Wow! So easy and delicious. Just about to make
it for the second time in3 days, this time for 8. The first time was just for 2. Used creme fraiche and as I didn't have any spring onions, used a shallot. Served it with only new potatoes and frozen peas but it was FAB!
