Smoked Cod & Spinach

Prepped and ready to pop in the Aga

Love this Smoked Cod & Spinach recipe. I assembled it in the afternoon and just popped it in the Aga 30mins before my weary commuter Husband returned home. One pot dishes are so simple, so delicious and take up so much less room in the dishwasher!  As usual, I used shortcuts (for that read ‘cheats’) and it’s a great dish to prepare as I have all the ingredients already, either in my freezer or storecupboard.

INGREDIENTS (serves 4)

500g frozen spinach (leaf or chopped), defrosted

500g smoked cod (ie two fillets)

Grated nutmeg


200ml double cream

200g grated cheese (I used mix of Cheddar and Parmesan)

breadcrumbsBreadcrumbs (pre bought – Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference Lemon & Pepper £1.85 for 135g are great)





Heat oven to 180 degrees.

Squeeze moisture out and layer the spinach at the bottom of a gratin dish.

Season with salt and pepper and the nutmeg.

Lay the cod fillets, skin side down, on top of the spinach.

In a small bowl, mix the cream and grated cheese and spread out over the fish.

Scatter a layer of breadcrumbs and bake for 30 mins.

Serve straight from the dish onto warmed plates.
