Even if you are cooking a plain piece of whitefish, you can spruce it up by making a wonderful lobster sauce to go with it. For the following recipe you will need a couple of filets of whitefish, and these can be halibut, haddock, plaice, or any whitefish you want. Just make sure it is boneless and skinless before you bake it. The fish is served on a bed of rice and spinach, and the hot lobster sauce is ladled over it.

This is such an easy recipe but it is seriously impressive, as most dishes containing lobster are. You can use fresh spinach if you have a package, or else simply throw some frozen spinach in a pan and let it gently thaw and warm up over a low heat. If you want to use fresh spinach, you will need a large package because spinach wilts away to almost nothing; a half-pound package of raw spinach will end up as a small handful of cooked spinach if you let it wilt completely. Rinse the spinach in water, and then add the leaves to a big pot. The moisture clinging to the leaves is all the moisture you will need. You do not need to bother removing the stems or chopping the leaves, even if they are big ones, since you will not see or taste the different in the finished wilted spinach.

Put the lid on the pot and heat it over a low heat for ten minutes, or until the spinach has wilted. If you want, you can fry some minced garlic in oil or butter before adding the spinach, to give it more flavor. Cook the rice in one pan, the spinach in a second, and the lobster sauce in a third. Do not worry about all the pans. Set a timer for the rice and bear in mind the spinach takes about ten minutes. The fish will take about twenty, so you can plan your timing ahead.
