  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.

Lovely - made with river cobbler as no haddock - as a previous comment suggested I chopped and fried an onion and a bit of green pepper with herbs and garlic before adding the spinach and cream cheese. Also put a little cheddar on the top. Have made twice now (2nd time stretched to me and the two kids). Will be making again frequently!

I made this scrumminess but using Bassa as my supermarket had no haddock, also, I roasted a few cherry tomatoes as I had them in the fridge anyway. I served with roasted new potatoes for a bit of texture change, something my other half is fussy about. Deffo something we'll be making in future.

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.

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.

Yes, I have done so several times, just cook for a bit longer
