Preheat oven to 350 F. Make sure fish and spinach are completely thawed. Squeeze the spinach to remove as much of the water as you can. Really try to get it as dry as you can.

Stir all ingredients together in a bowl until spinach is well distributed and the mixture is even in colour. Spray either a 9×5-in. loaf pan or an 8-in. square or round cake pan with nonstick spray.

Pour mixture into the pan and spread evenly. Bake uncovered for about 1 hour or until a golden brown crust forms.
