What a great way to combine all food groups into one casserole dish. So yummy, the kids won't even mind eating their veggies. Also a good meal idea for the working mom; it's simple to put together and cooks quickly in the oven. Substitute any mild white fish for the cod if desired.

FANTABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been saying for the last few days that I wanted some cod & panko so on the hunt I went...ran across this quick little ditty & was most pleasantly surprised. I didn't have any cheddar cheese so I used the rest of some 4-cheese (Italian blend) and the rest Asiago cheese instead and when I tell y'all that dish was good!!!!!! Yep this will be in the rotation. Read More

I made this last week. It’s way too salty! I will make it next week minus any salt or pepper and add my own after it’s cooked. Think it will be great when omitting the salt. Read More

Was looking for a recipe for pollock, found this one. Used lime juice instead of lemon because I didn't have a lemon. My husband and grandchildren loved it. The only way my granddaughter likes pollock. Read More

loved the combination of spinach and fish (only we use a lot more spinach). No changes. I did notice that one reviewer said she changed the egg for mayo...........she must have been reviewing a different recipe because no egg listed in this one. I just question this that is all. Read More

Even with the cheese this was a healthy choice type of recipe that really delivered on taste. Don't skimp on the spinach. We all know how it cooks down so be sure to use the entire pound. Such an easy one dish dinner that serves up veggies protein and flavor. Read More

This turned out very well although I did not follow the recipe exactly.I am giving 4 stars since I did change the recipe. I did not have a lemon or the fresh dill but I used some old bay seasoning, and some garlic salt, The cheese and bread crumbs make a rich topping which was satisfying and flavorful. Family loved it!

Love this!!! Have made several times it is so easy and perfect for busy days! I make as is except cutting back on the dill (not a favorite taste). The spinach is always piled way higher than my 9x13 dish I have to try to pack it down to get it all to fit inside but it bakes down so no worries. I have tried this with cod and tilapia both are good but when using tiliapa put a little extra water to the bottom of the dish so the spinach does not dry out.. Also do not over cook or spinach will dry out. One of my favorite recipies!!!! Read More
