I too combined the feta with spinach prior to cooking and it was great! I baked it in the oven and topped it with the extra "stuffing". Really delicious! Read More

Like everyone else, I mixed the spinach and the feta together before stuffing. I had a lot of stuffing left over so instead of grilling, I placed the steaks in a fish pan, topped with remaining stuffing, poured the remaining oil-lemon mixture of steaks, and baked on 350 for 15-20 minutes. If I had some pine nuts on hand, I would have added them too. Very easy prep and clean up, Not the most amazing dish as far as flavor but will make again. Read More

This was GREAT! I added artichokes and capers. I sauteed some garlic, wilted the spinach into the garlic, then added the articokes and capers and let it cook for about 3 minutes and then I stuffed it and the feta into the fish, and topped the fish with the rest of the mixture. I broiled it for about 10-15 minutes. It was absolutely amazing. Thanks for the great idea! Read More

I'm new to the world of fish, and this was an amazingly easy and delicious meal. My husband, who is the chef in our house was amazed by the meal! Definitely a keeper! I, too, mixed in the feta and made extra stuffing for the top. -Highly recommend! -Oh, I made it alongside the Asparagus, Feta and Couscous Salad recipe I found on this site... great pairing!

I just had this for dinner. Having never made swordfish before I opted not to stuff it and topped it with the spinach mixture instead. Also I added sun-dried tomatoes to the spinace/feta mixture and it was sooooooo good. Next time I will stuff it. I think the feta would add more flavor to the fish if it was stuffed inside. Read More

EXCELLENT! I made this as written and it turned out perfectly! I did not stuff the swordfish but made the stuffing and put it on top of the grilled fish. I served it up with a variety of grilled vegetables with a Greek -style dressing. So Good! I will be making this again and again! Read More
