12 Parcels of fish fillet in spinach : Photo of step #12Prepare the sauce of your choice.

4 min.
13 Parcels of fish fillet in spinach : Photo of step #13Divide the parcels between the serving plates, add sauce and serve immediately. 5 min.

Remarks

The only real difficulty in this recipe is to get enough big spinach leaves to roll up the fish pieces. Get the biggest you can when buying them.

For a diet recipe, serve the parcels just sprinkled with a little lemon juice, or a dash of olive oil. No beurre blanc...
