Here’s a fabulously healthy and easy dinner for your family that comes together in no time for any night during a busy week. A creamy spinach mixture spread onto thin flounder filets rolled up and baked to perfection in under 30 minutes!
Do you need to fry fish in order to get your family to eat it? If that’s the case, as it is in my house, you will be pleasantly surprised when they gobble this meal up. All 3 of my picky kids ate it all!
No butter, no frying but totally delicious!
Once baked the spinach and cheese along with the juices from the fish make a nice sauce to pour over each piece before serving. Top with a little parsley or green onions and a wedge of lemon. Enjoy immediately!
