Baked Haddock with Spinach

This haddock dinner was so yummy, I just had to share it with all of you. It was quite simple to make as well, which is always a plus. Sarah did most of it herself. She is taking over the dinner preparations a couple of times a week. We served this with brown rice.


  • 3 cups frozen chopped spinach, about 2 packages
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/2lbs haddock fillets
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 tsp dried leaf thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried tarragon


  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 1 tsp cornstarch

Cook frozen spinach in a small amount of water with a dash of salt. Drain well, squeezing out excess water.

In a medium skillet, melt butter. Saute onions for about 5 minutes. Add spinach and nutmeg and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Butter a shallow baking dish. Arrange haddock fillets in a single layer. Place spoonfuls of the spinach mixture around haddock.

Drain tomatoes reserving juice. Place tomatoes around haddock. Sprinkle with herbs and salt. Bake uncovered in a 375 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, add water, if necessary, to tomato juice to make 1 cup. Melt butter in small saucepan. Saute chopped onion until tender. Add 3/4 cup of the reserved tomato juice and bring to a boil. Stir cornstarch into remaining 1/4 cup juice. Stir into boiling mixture. Continue cooking and stirring until the sauce returns to a boil. Pour over haddock fillets.


  1. This looks so yummy! I am going to have to raid your house some night when you make this again because Pat and the kids would NOT eat it (maybe Emmy) I love haddock and spinach so it seems like a great dish to me!!

  2. This looks so good! I'm a devout menu planner, but after a very busy week last week/weekend I had no desire to menu plan. No, I'm frantically searching for meals! :) This works perfectly, I have all that on hand. :)


Thanks for stopping by for a visit! I look forward to your thoughts.
