Boil potatoes in salted water for about 10 minutes, then drain and mash them with a little olive oil, salt, pepper and nutmeg, if using. Set aside. Heat a little olive oil in a saucepan and sauté the onion, carrot and courgettes for about 5 minutes. Add the cream and wine and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and add cheese, lemon juice, mustard and parsley. Steam spinach for 1 minute or put it in boiling water and leave until wilted, then drain and chop. Arrange spinach, raw fish and egg in a shallow, ovenproof dish. Pour over cream sauce and toss gently to combine. Spread the mash on top of the fish and bake for about 25 to 35 minutes in a 230 ºC preheated oven until potatoes are golden. Serve with a mixed green salad or steamed vegetables.
