  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomato
  • 1 pound whitefish filets

Directions:

1. Cut whitefish into 4 serving size pieces. Place in foil-lined 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan; set aside.

2. Cook spinach according to package directions; drain thoroughly, reserving liquid. Add water to liquid to measure 1/3 cup.
