"You know when they have a fishing show on TV? They catch the fish and then let it go. They don't want to eat the fish, they just want to make it late for something." -Mitch Hedberg
The key to this recipe is to lightly wilt the spinach.
I had a version of this in a restaurant that was simply the seared herbed fish over a fresh spinach salad. I liked it but thought the dressing was too strong. After fiddling with the recipe a few times, I realized what would make it better would be to wilt the spinach before tossing it in the warm sauce.
