Read the reviews and added Rocket and fresh Dill to the spinach. Was delicious.

Quick and easy to make. I used frozen fish and microwaved it before just warming it through with the spinach (again, frozen and defrosted in microwave) in the oven. Simple but I found it tasty :)

I squeezed the spinach in a tea towel to get rid of any excess liquid. The finished dish tasted okay but it took way more than 10 minutes to cook - probably about 25 minutes. The dish was quite dry overall and would benefit from some kind of sauce.

Not over impressed with this... soggy spinach, not much flavour except from the goats cheese. Served it with roasted lemon cauliflower with capers, which to be honest, saved the day.
