Silver Packet Flounder with Miso Mayo

I've been trying desperately to get our fish freezer situation under control. It seems to be a losing battle (we got another 1.5 lbs of lemon sole this week!), but it's made for some quick and easy dinners. This one is a full meal in one convenient little packet. Low effort, but the spinach wilts beautifully and the rehydrated sun-dried tomato is excellent. The miso mayo seemed a little out there, but I loved it and it gave the dish a little something extra. I substituted black cod for flounder.
