4 large sole fillets, skinned
salt and freshly ground black pepper
juice of 1/2 small lemon
3 tbsp (1 1/2 oz) 40 g butter
1/3 cup (1 1/2 oz) 40 g flour
3/4 pint (450 ml) milk
1 lb (450 g) frozen cut-leaf spinach, thawed and drained
3 oz (75 g) well-flavoured Cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup (30 g) fresh white breadcrumbs

2. Melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and cook for a minute. Gradually blend in the milk and bring to the boil slowly, stirring until thickened. Simmer for 2 minutes, then season to taste.
