    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Lightly butter a 2-litre casserole or baking dish large enough to hold haddock fillets in a single layer.
    2. Melt 15g butter in a frying pan over medium heat and cook the onion slices, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in spinach and nutmeg and cook for about 3 minutes.
    3. Arrange haddock fillets in baking dish. Spoon equal portions of the spinach mixture between the fillets. Spoon drained tomatoes around fillets and sprinkle with the thyme, tarragon and salt.
    4. Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
    5. While fish is baking, make the sauce. If necessary add enough water to reserved tomato liquid to make 250ml. In the frying pan, melt the remaining butter over medium heat. Stir in the onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add 175ml the tomato juice to the onions. Bring mixture to the boil. Whisk the cornflour into the remaining juice, then add to the frying pan. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring, until sauce thickens slightly. Pour sauce over baked fillets and serve.

    Tarragon, nutmeg & thyme - what a brilliant combination !!! Tasting as I worked my way through the directions, I found it a bit bland for out tastes, so I added 2T freshly minced garlic to the onion for last 2 min of sauté, added 1-1/2 T of capers & 1/4 C white wine to sauce, used 28 oz can diced tomato & increased the thyme to 1 tsp & tarragon to 3/4 tsp. Marvelous dish; definitely making again! Thanks for sharing.  -  03 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Hubby really liked it, I found it a little bland, think I'll add more spice/herbs next time. We enjoyed it on a bed of rice with asparagras and greens beans. Yum!  -  19 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
