Makes 4 servings

Here's a quick and easy dish for the end of a busy day when you are hungry for a hearty meal but have limited time and energy. To complete the meal, prepare couscous.

If you have a few extra minutes, at the same time as the fish bakes, you can roast vegetables to provide a pleasant companion dish. Toss sliced carrots, Brussels sprouts, or asparagus with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake for about 10 minutes or until tender.

For the fish
4 (4-ounce) flounder fillets (or other white fish fillets such as cod, walleye, or orange roughy)
4 cups finely chopped salad spinach
2 eggs
¼ cup Italian-flavored dried bread crumbs
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/8 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
2 tomatoes, cut into¼-inch slices
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese

For the sauce
½ cup sour cream
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon sniped fresh dill or 1 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce, to taste
Ground white pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place the fish fillets on the prepared pan.

Stir together the spinach, eggs, breadcrumbs, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Spread over the fish. Top each fillet with a row of 3 overlapping tomato slices. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 8 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Meanwhile, stir together the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Spoon into a small serving bowl.

To serve, transfer the fish with the tomato topping to plates, and serve the sauce on the side.

    DUI Driver in Fatal Early Morning Accident Ordered to Detox Program in 1995

    The Santa Barbara woman arrested for DUI in the early morning accident that left three people dead early Monday morning has a lengthy court record out of Ventura County. Kimberly Kreis, 52, was ordered to serve 30 days in a detox program as far back as 1995.

    The car that Kreis was driving crashed into a disabled Mazda near the Castillo off-ramp of the southbound 101 freeway in Santa Barbara. Two 17 year old North Torrance High School students were killed in the accident- Jessica Leffew and Danielle Murillo. 20 year old Brian Lopez also died in the wreck. The driver of the Mazda, Eric August, is hospitalized in critical condition.

    A NewsChannel 3 investigation found records out of Ventrua County that appear to show that Greis has at least one prior conviction involving drugs and or alcohol, and in 1995 she was ordered to serve 30 days in a Cottage Hospital detox program.

    CHP investigators are still trying to piece together why the Mazda veered right into a guardrail, causing it to flip onto it's roof before coming to rest in the middle of the southbound freeway, which set into motion the deadly accident.

    CHP Officer Jonathan Guiterrez, said "A lot of things could have happened, He could have fallen asleep. We just don't know at this point."
