How to make it

  • Directions for Fish:
  • The fish should be scaled and cleaned thoroughly with the under portion slit to remove the gut.
  • Dry properly and season with pepper, salt, scallions, garlic and lime juice. Let stand for 45 minutes.
  • Fill the cavity of the fish with spinach stuffing.
  • Place the fish in a baking-serving dish and brush with half of the butter. Pour the fish stock and rest of the butter into the dish. Heat over to 375 degrees and bake for 45 minutes, basting whenever necessary.
  • Remove dish from oven. Use a bulb baster or spoon to remove juices into a saucepan.
  • Thicken sauce over a medium heat with 1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 tbs water. Pour over fish. Garnish with cut lime wedges and serve.
  • Directions for Spinach Stuffing:
  • Remove hard stems from spinach and cook in boiling water for about 8 minutes until tender.
  • Drain off water and set aside to cool. Squeeze spinach to remove excess water--until the mass is homogeneous and pulpy.
  • In a skillet melt the butter and cook the spinach to remove as much moisture as possible. Remove from heat and add the lime juice, bread crumbs, salt, milk and pepper. Blend well.
  • Season with more lime juice and salt if necessary to correct flavor.
