  • 1 handful spinach per person
  • 1 haddock fillet per person fresh or frozen
  • 1 large egg per person
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a saucepan, cook spinach (one large handful per person) in a bit of water until wilted. Press some of the water out against the side of the pan, and plate.
  • Add fresh or frozen haddock fillets (one per person) to the same pot and just cover with water (milk works too). Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer uncovered for 5 - 10 minutes, or until cooked. Take out and lay over the spinach.
  • Drop eggs into the water. (Again, one per person.) You can poach them, but it's easier just to drop into the water and allow to simmer until it's cooked to your liking.
  • Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper, and enjoy right away.
