Mushroom-Crusted Flounder with Creamed Spinach

  • TOTAL TIME: 30 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  1. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 2 garlic cloves, very finely chopped
  3. 1 medium shallot, very finely chopped
  4. Two 5-ounce bags baby spinach
  5. 1/2 cup heavy cream
  6. Pinch of cayenne pepper
  7. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. 1/4 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded, caps thinly sliced
  9. 2 tablespoons fine dry bread crumbs
  10. Vegetable oil, for brushing
  11. Four 6-ounce flounder fillets
  12. 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  1. Preheat the broiler and position a rack 8 inches from the heat. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add 1 garlic clove and half of the chopped shallot and cook over moderately high heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the spinach and cook, tossing, until wilted. Add the cream and cook over moderately high heat until thickened, about 7 minutes. Add the cayenne and season the spinach with salt and pepper; keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the remaining garlic clove and minced shallot and cook over moderate heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the shiitake, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and the bread crumbs.
  3. Lightly brush a large baking sheet with oil. Set the flounder fillets on the sheet and pat the mushroom mixture onto each fillet. Broil the fish for 4 to 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Transfer the fish to plates and spoon the creamed spinach alongside. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
