fast fish florentine

Recipe by
Lake Mills, WI

I've had this recipe for such a long time that I have no idea where it came from! It may have come from an old publication called "Cook and Tell" or I may have shared it there. When I make it now I use fresh or frozen spinach and real mashed potatoes.. We used to use the cheapest fish fillets we could find. (this was a good but cheap dinner for our family) Now I use haddock for the fish; and because I am gluten free, I use crushed cornflakes instead of croutons. Sometimes I will add other things like thin sliced tomato or sweet onion. Dress it up how you like and let me know how it was!
