Method

  1. Tip the lentils into a pan with the onion, carrot and celery. Pour in the stock and bring to the boil. Give it a stir, then reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20-25 mins, until the lentils are tender.

  2. Mix together the crème fraîche, half the dill and the lemon zest, adding a little seasoning. Put the fish in a shallow dish with a splash of water and cover with cling film. Microwave on Medium for 4-6 mins until the fish flakes easily.

  3. When the lentils are cooked, stir in the spinach until the leaves are barely wilted, then stir in the crème fraîche mixture. Divide between 2 warmed plates and top with the haddock. Scatter over the remaining dill and serve.

Feels nice and healthy. Had to be dairy free so missed out the creme fraiche and used mayonnaise instead.

Great recipe, have cooked it twice now and everyone loved it. The lentils needed an extra 10 minutes. I pan fried the fish - first time with smoked river cobbler (been meaning to give this a try!) and then with salmon. The dill really makes this dish. I will definitely cook the lentils again and again, lovely fresh flavour.

Surprisingly delicious, and so healthy. My partner groaned when I told him what we were having, but he ended up devouring the lot. Will definitely be making it again. Lentils took a lot longer than stated though - about 45 minutes.

Tasty. Tweaked the recipe. Used up white fish instead of smoked haddock. Grilled it with black pepper and chilli flakes. Used tinned lentils. Added them to the sauted onion, carrots and celery. Nice dish. Will do again. 5 stars. Problems rating this recipe from a tablet.

Lovely recipe. Made some tweaks. Instead of smoked haddock, used up white fish. Grilled it, topped with blak pepper and chilli flakes. Used tinned lentils. Added them for last few mins to warm through to sauted carrots, celery, and onion. Will do again. 5 stars.. New app and rate this recipe stars not working. :-)

Dee-lish. I used salmon fillets instead, and swapped dill for some thyme and it was yummy. Really quick and easy and has few ingredients. Will make for a dinner party sometime as it looked pretty impressive too.

This is nice but not one of Mary's best. Tastes very healthy (and is)...

I am usually rate most recipes in this site as really god or excellent but this, I feel, and is vastly overrated. It's a dish which didn't hang together.
