Fish with Spinach

(Ispanakli Balik)

Fish with Spinach
2 sets of any kind of fish fillets, gutted, washed with cold water
2-3 tbsp olive oil

500 g spinach, roots cut off*, washed several times, drained
2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 large tomato, peeled, diced

Lemon Butter Sauce:
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

Fry the fish with olive oil (each side for 4-5 minutes) in a pan or grill.

Meanwhile, saute the onion in a medium-size pot with olive oil until the colour of the onions turns to light brown. Add the spinach, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes at medium-low heat. Turn the heat off. Arrange on a serving platter.

Place the cooked fish over the top. Heat up the butter in a small pan, add in the lemon juice and red pepper flakes and then turn the heat off. Don't burn the pepper! Drizzle all over the fish. Serve while still warm.

2 servings.

*You can make Spinach Root Salad with the roots.
