4 Barramundi Fillets (or any mild white fish)
1-2 teaspoons The Gourmet Farm Girl Blackening Seasoning

Season the fish fillets with blackening seasoning and salt.
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 3-5 minutes; remove from heat and place under the broiler for 2-3 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.
