Stage 1 - 1 hour 9 min.

Cut 4 fillets fish in pieces of about 1.5 cm or ½ inch square.

It's easier to use rather thin fish fillets, instead of thick like whiting or cod.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

Stage 4 - 5 min.

Stage 10

Stage 11 - 40 min.

Continue in this way with all the fish pieces.

These can be made beforehand, even the day before, but the parcels should be kept refrigerated, under plastic film.

Stage 12 - 4 min.

Prepare the sauce of your choice.

Heat serving plates.

Melt the knob of butter in a frying pan, then put in the parcels, with the top side downwards in the butter. Cook like that for 2 minutes, covered, then for two further minutes on the other side, uncovered.

Stage 13 - 5 min.

Divide the parcels between the serving plates, add sauce and serve immediately.
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...
