“This recipe is inspired by the book "World Food - Spain" by Beverly Leblanc.Recipes with raisins and roasted pine nuts are from the area of Barcelona and are called "a la catalana". The raisins and pine nuts give a delicious, sweet crunch to the spinach; any firm, white fish could be substituted. Be careful when roasting the pine nuts, they burn very fast!”
