This White Fish Florentine is a lush and flavorful dish inspired by my visit to Tuscany with DaVinci Wine a few years ago.
Spinach is used in all sorts of Tuscan dishes and it’s also prevalent in many coastal seafood recipes like my Spinach Ricotta Stuffed Dover Sole. I love the simple list of ingredients combined with fresh white fish, which is typically easy to find year round. This gorgeous recipe makes for a fuss free weeknight meal or an elegant meal for entertaining.
Living here in the Pacific Northwest, I use several different types of white fish for this recipe, depending on the season. I adore this dish when halibut is in season or when I can snag a gorgeous piece of black or ling cod.
I like to enjoy the fresh and enticing flavors of this White Fish Florentine paired with a bottle of DaVinci Pinot Grigio. Perfection!
Delicious Wishes and Loads of Love,
A great way to use all that fishing trip fish stocked in the freezer or the spinach you froze from summer. Substitute with fresh winter greens instead of spinach and spike with your favorite spices rather than the Dijon.
- 1lb fresh spinach (or 1 large pkg frozen organic chopped spinach)
- Olive oil
- 3 tablespoons chopped shallots
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1/3 cup heavy cream (for a saucier dish add ½ cup cream)
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest and a few squeezes of lemon
- Salt and pepper
- 1 ½ – 2 lbs fresh fish (Cod, Ling Cod, Halibut, Snapper, Sole, if using snapper try to remove the bones prior to cooking)
- 1/3 cup bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan
- Serve with fresh lemon wedges
This dish is inspired by my visit to Tuscany with the 2013 DaVinci Wine Storyteller Experience and adapted from many versions of Fish Florentine. I dined on something similar and I was so impressed with the simple but flavorful meal I had to re-create it for this website. Enjoy!
