The Fish Deli Fillet of Cod with Cheese Sauce and Spinach

The Fish Deli Fillet of Cod with Cheese Sauce and Spinach


Cod fillets


Juice of one lemon

50g butter

50g plain flour

100g cheddar cheese, grated


Fresh or dried tarragon


1. Lay the fillets into a shallow tray and just cover with milk. Season with a little black pepper and lemon juice. Cover with foil and poach in a medium hot pre-heated oven for 20 minutes.

2. Make the white sauce: Melt the butter in a thick bottomed saucepan and add the flour. Mix together over a gentle heat to form a paste (roux).

3. Gradually add your hot cooking stock from your poached fish until a sauce consistency is reached. Gently cook for 10 minutes or so.

4. Add some tarragon and grated cheese to taste.

5. Cook the spinach and lay onto the bottom of an earthenware dish.

6. Place fish on top of the spinach.

7. Ladle over the sauce and sprinkle with the remainder of the cheddar cheese. Bake in a hot oven for 20 minutes.

8. Serve with mashed potatoes.
