My parents love to watch cooking shows, lately they’ve been watching Jamie Oliver and this one stroke them. We’ve made it two Sundays in a row for lunch. It’s that good. Usually, fish is not a savory dish, but this one… you’ll love! The technique for the spinach is wonderful too, since it lets it retain it’s bright green color and the lemon you drizzle it before cooking takes away the bitter flavor. This recipe became an instant favorite for my family!

- Sprinkle the fish fillets with the cumin and thyme, and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
