Ingredients

2 rainbow trout, gutted and cleaned

110g (4oz) fresh spinach leaves

120g (5oz) unsalted butter

8 fl oz (250ml) single cream

a few sprigs of fresh fennel

salt and pepper

Method

Season the fish well and put each into a tin-foil parcel with a little of the butter and the fennel sprigs. Bake for about 30mins in the oven at Gas Mark 5, 190 deg C, 375 deg F.

For the sauce, heat the cream in a non-stick pan and let it reduce down to half, then beat in the butter a little at a time to make a smooth mixture. Cook the spinach in a very little salted water until soft (about 5 minutes). Drain very well and chop into small pieces. Stir into the cream sauce. When the fish is cooked, unwrap each parcel and stir any extra juices into the sauce. Taste the sauce and add salt, if necessary, then serve hot with the fish.
