Halibut in a cheesy sauce over spinach. This is SO easy and the halibut comes out moist and flaky. Great for company because it's fancy but simple to make!

This was a really good recipe. I lightened it up a bit. I used skim mik and 2% cheese and I omitted the water (since the skim milk is thin to begin with) and added salt and pepper to the milk mixture. I also used talapia and fresh spinach. I sauteed the spinach first a bit but I don't think I will bother next time. It came out great! Thanks! Read More

I made this recipe for my family and it was DE-lish. I used fresh spinach instead of frozen only because that's what I had on hand. It turned out great. I will definitely make this again. Also it was very easy to make. The family really enjoyed it! Read More

Great recipe. I used halibut fillets instead of steaks and fresh spinach as is. This would work well with cheaper fish also. I had twice as much cheese sauce than was required so saved till the next day for Tuna Mornay. I will never make cheese sauce any other way - I'm so grateful to have learned this method. I cut the cooking time by at least half. Read More

Excellent. I've never made cheese sauce this way before but it turns out OK and is much quicker than the roux method. Read More

I made this for my family tonight and they really didn't enjoy it. I think the cheese to spinach/fish ratio was too much it would have probably been better if I had used the sauce sparingly since it was really rich. Read More

Outstanding! I made this tonight and it was wonderful. It was a great way to get the kids to eat spinach. Make sure to drain the spinach well before you line the pan otherwise it will water everything down. Read More

Had problems with the white sauce so went back to tried and true method. Once it was all together the whole family thought it was good. Read More
