Ingredients

  • 225g bag young spinach leaves
  • 50g (1 3/4oz) butter
  • 4 tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 x 175g (6oz) smoked haddock fillets
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 300ml (1/2 pint) milk
  • 50g (1 3/4oz) Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 large British Lion eggs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180 C/350 F.
  2. Empty the spinach into a large pan, cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or until wilted. Drain well in a sieve, pressing down with a wooden spoon to remove the excess juices. Add 15g (1/2oz) butter and season to taste. Arrange four heaps of spinach in a shallow ovenproof dish. Top with sliced tomatoes, then the haddock fillets on top of the spinach. Cover with buttered foil and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the fish flakes easily.
  3. Meanwhile, place the remaining butter, flour and milk, in a medium pan and bring to the boil, whisking all the time, until the mixture boils and thickens. Cook for 1 minute and then remove from the heat. Stir in half the cheese and set aside
  4. Preheat the grill. Top each fillet with a poached egg, pour over the sauce and top with the remaining cheese. Cook for 2 minutes under a hot grill until golden brown.
