Tonight’s Dinner – Cod Florentine

Posted by reeeeeen on June 25, 2007

I love Recipezaar.com’s search engine, so I tend to make it my first stop when I’m looking for something specific.  Today, my mission was ‘low fat’ + ‘fish’ + ‘greens’.  Tonight I made Cod using this recipe I found, along with whole grain rice. 

My substitutions:  Cod instead of Sole, Mustard Greens (from the garden) instead of spinach, fat free 1/2 n 1/2 instead of cream, and clam base instead of chicken broth.   It came out GREAT!  Teensy bit too watery, so next time I will increase the amount of flour. 

Here’s the original recipe (from the link above):
1 1/2 lbs fresh spinach,cleaned
1lb sole fillets
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 green onions, chopped
1 garlic clove,crushed
2 cups mushrooms,sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup light cream or milk
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated

Preheat oven 375*.

  1. Cook washed spinach with water still clinging over medium-high heat until wilted; drain. When cool enough to handle, gently squeeze out remaining moisture. Finely chop and place in an oiled casserole.
  2. Top with the sole filet and sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning.
  3. In skillet heat oil; add onions,salt, garlic and mushrooms; sauté for 4 minutes; whisk in flour and slowly add chicken broth and cream stirring contantly for 3-4 minutes until thickened; stir in Parmesan cheese.
  4. Spoon over sole.
  5. Cover and bake for 20 minutes; uncover and bake another 5 minutes.
