Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Pile the spinach into a large pan over a medium heat, turning it over and over until wilted. Remove from the heat and drain off the excess liquid.

  2. Mix spinach with the soft cheese, then place in the bottom of a small baking dish and sit haddock pieces on top. Lay sliced tomatoes on top of the fish and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Bake for 15-20 mins (depending on thickness of the haddock), or until the fish flakes easily.

Great recipe, fast and easy as it says and tasted delicious. The only thing I changed was that I used smoked haddock, the rest I followed exactly as it said. I'm definitely adding to my favourites.

Great dish! I modified slightly by adding a bit of Dijon mustard to the cream cheese and also using some cheddar cheese. I also used a tin of chopped tomatoes on top instead of sliced tomatoes. I made sure to use smoked haddock as it gives a bigger flavour impact.

Fabulous! Quick, easy and full of flavour. My kids all loved it so it will definitely become a regular in our house.

Super easy, fast recipe. Tasted great with little effort, I served with sweet potato fries which worked really well. For me the fish can take a little longer but overall a great recipe!

This is one of my fish-staples. All ingredients go well together and make a satisfying dish. I must admit I swap the Parmesan with a small amount of cheddar; but that's it!

An incredibly simple dish but a perfect mid week meal. Very easy to prepare and very tasty. served it with roasted new potatoes and a green medley of broad beans, petit pois and samphire.

Thought it sounded a bit bland so jazzed it up a bit. Fried off some onions, mushrooms and sliced red pepper. Added garlic and mixed herbs then melted in the cream cheese and the wilted spinach. Spooned into a baking dish then topped with fish, tomatoes and Parmesan as per recipe before baking for 20 minutes. Turned out to be my favourite fish dish ever!

Feels both healthy and rich at the same time. And I always love meals where there's veg cooked with the meat or fish, so this is a bit of a winner. I served with mash.

This is a super delicious, filling and easy recipe. I added a little salt and pepper to the soft cheese to enhance the flavor and grated some mild chedder on top as I didn't have any Parmesan (still tasted lovely!) I also grilled it for a few minutes at the end to make it a little crisp. Served with herby new potatoes. Yummy!

Could I do this using frozen cod?

Yes, cod will be absolutely fine to use in this recipe. If you're cooking the fillets from frozen add approx 8-10 mins to the cooking time.
