3 tablespoons butter + 2 tablespoons olive oil
4 medium size white fish fillets such as Tilapia
1-2 teaspoons The Gourmet Farm Girl Blackening Seasoning

Season the fish fillets with blackening seasoning
While potatoes are frying; heat the remaining oil in a large heavy oven proof or cast iron skillet; place the fish in skillet and fry for 3-4 minutes, remove from heat and place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes till cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
Steam the spinach in a steamer pan or add 3-4 tablespoons water to a stock pot, add spinach; cover and cook over medium high heat till just wilted, 5-6 minutes
Place the potato pancake onto plate; add a layer of spinach and top with a piece of fish.
