600 g cod (or other white fish)
100 ml white wine
100 ml single cream
1 tsp grated zest of organic lemon
1 tsp grated nutmeg
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3 tbsp breadcrumbs
25 g butter


PREHEAT THE OVEN to 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6.

RINSE THE SPINACH THOROUGHLY, wilt it 1 or 2 minutes, and leave to dry in colander. Cut potatoes and fish in cubes.

MIX TOGETHER SPINACH, POTATOES, AND FISH in a mixing bowl. Add white wine, cream, lemon zest, nutmeg, salt and pepper.

PLACE THE MIX INSIDE A BUTTERED OVENPROOF DISH about 25 × 35 centimetre, sprinkle breadcrumbs on the top, and add small lumps of butter on top.
