Tilapia with Spinach & Tomatoes

Tilapia with Spinach & Tomatoes
This is by FAR one of the best Tilapia recipes that I have tried; the tomatoes add this wonderful sweet and juicy-ness to the Tilapia and the lemon drizzled on top after the baking is superb!! Best of all, it is SUPER easy to put together.

This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Tilapia (I used 3 filets, but should have used 4 for the 2.5 of us)
1/2 t pepper
1/2 t salt
1 t basil
1/2 t oregano
1 t onion powder
1 t minced garlic
3 T, separated olive oil
Fresh washed spinach with stems removed
tomatoes (I used plum) sliced thinly
scallions or onion finely diced
Parmesan cheese
Lemon juice

1. Grease a baking dish and arrange tilapia in one layer on bottom

2. Sprinkle the tilapia with the salt, pepper, basil, oregano, onion powder, garlic and 2T of the olive oil
3. Layer the spinach, onion, and tomato slices on top.

4. Drizzle with 1T more of the olive oil
5. Sprinkle (or coat... I like cheese) with the fresh Parmesan cheese.

6. Bake at 400* for 20-25 minutes
7. Remove from oven and drizzle with some lemon juice (I used a bottle of lemon juice and just drizzled over tilapia... maybe 1T worth.

8. Enjoy

  9. Oooo, looks great!!! I do something like this with haddock and bread crumbs and layered tomatoes on the top. It's as delicious as I imagine this is. I don't know that I have ever tried I might just have to!! Thanks for linking up to my Marvelous mess party!!

  11. Yuuuuum! You can come visit and cook for me, right? ;) Thanks for linking this up at H&H, sorry I'm a bit slow getting around to everyone!

  12. I made this for dinner tonight and served it over Almond Rice Pilaf. It was DELICIOUS!!! The garlic, tomato, and parmesan flavors marry beautifully with the spinach and tilapia. BTW, Costco has the BEST tilapia "loins" ever. (I always get a kick out of the loin lil' tilapias even have them??? Well, I guess so!)

  13. is it teaspoons or tablespoon????

    1. Oil or lemon? Tablespoon both (I guess), teaspoon of all spices. For the lemon I just take my bottle of lemon juice and drizzle over the top. I would say between 1t and 1T.

  14. Making it now! Can't wait!
