Flounder Florentine

admin's picture
  Spinach 1 Pound
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Whole wheat flour 2 Tablespoon
  Skim milk 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Shredded cheddar cheese 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Flounder fillets 1 1⁄2 Pound
  Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
  Watercress sprigs 1 (For Garnish)
  Lemon wedges 2 (For Garnish)

Rinse the spinach well and remove the stems.
Cook in a large saucepan just in the water that clings to the leaves.
When the spinach is wilted, set aside to cool.
Mince the spinach when it is cool enough to handle.
Melt the butter in a medium-size skillet over medium heat.
Stir in the flour and cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes.
Add the milk all at once and stir until smooth.
Add the cheese and stir until melted.
Stir in the spinach and remove from the heat.
Sprinkle the skin side of the fish fillets with lemon juice.
Roll up the fish fillets and place seam-side down in a 9 X 13-inch baking dish lightly coated with no-stick spray.
Spoon the spinach-cheese sauce over the fish fillets.
(Reheat sauce slightly if it becomes too stiff.) Bake at 350° for about 25 minutes or until the fish is flaky throughout.
Garnish with watercress and lemon wedges, if desired.
