    Salmon Florentine

    Place loads and loads of spinach in the bottom of a deep oven proof dish, place a skinless piece of salmon fillet on top. No need to cook the spinach before you put it in the dish. It wilts beautifully in the oven whilst cooking.

    Make a light cheese sauce - milk from ration (or syn it), 1 oz full fat cheddar (or 42g of reduced fat cheddar [HexA], and about 1 oz flour to thicken (my book reckons an oz is about 4 syns). Pour the sauce over the salmon and spinach.

    Cook in an oven at 180c (fan oven) or 200c (normal) for 15-25 minutes.
    15 minutes if you like your salmon pretty raw like I do or 25 minutes if you like it falling apart.

    Serve with whatever takes your fancy - I usually have a jacket spud (HexB) and some additional veg (I love it with lightly steamed asparagus). Hey presto, a meal without too much hassle and very tasty.

    Chicken Florentine
    You can also do it with a filleted chicken breast too and it is just as good. I'm sure there is also other fish/meat you could it with but I love these two.

    Eggs Florentine (Green day)
    You can also do it with eggs - egg florentine is a classic recipe! Just break the raw eggs onto the spinach (don't add the sauce yet) and cook in the oven for about 10-15 minutes. Just serve with the cheesy sauce poured over (classic recipe is supposed to be hollandais sauce but this has far too many syns).

    PS - If you don't want to put the oven on just steam some spinach, top with a poached egg and pour the sauce over.
