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.

I loved this quick and easy recipe. I thought it was a long shot cooking it for my 5 and 3 year olds, but they polished it off and told me this was now one of their favourite suppers!

cooked this tonight and it was fabulous - nutritionally the perfect meal. I don't think it matters which fish you use, it will taste good. Next time I will try the lentils using basil instead of diil, and chicken breasts instead of fish. Maybe marscapone instead of Creme Fraiche? The options are limitless. This will become a firm favourite!

Simple and delicious. I cooked it for my hubby (who works in high end catering) last night and not only did he absolutely love it, he even said it looked like 'restaurant food'. And this from a man who is not the biggest lentil fan! It's on the list to make again!

Having read the other comments, I was expecting this to be uber-delicious, and it was very nice, but not quite the yummiest thing in the world, possibly because my expectations were too high!
