Pinterest can really come through in a pinch…I had tilapia and spinach in the fridge and knew there was a combo here but had no idea what to do with it. Quick search and whamm-o – a million ideas! The one that drew me in quickly was the Greek Tilapia over Wilted Spinach.
It’s super simple – tilapia & tomato in a baking dish – top with garlic and lime juice – cover and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes.
While that’s baking, saute a couple of shallots…
I pulled the fish out after 20 minutes and it wasn’t cooked yet – so I decided to pop it in the sautee pan and just speed things up a bit. Then I took the fish out…
Threw in a load of spinach until it wilted…and dropped in a little feta just as it was finishing. The feta wasn’t melted but it wasn’t cold either…
Plate it up – fish & tomato topped with the spinach/shallot/feta mixture! It was really good. Larry’s not a big spinach fan but even he thought it was good. I loved it!
