Number of Servings: 4


    -4 4 oz Tilapia fillets (or other fish)
    -4 oz fat free cream cheese
    -1/2 can spinach
    -1 tsp nutmeg
    -pinch of salt
    -1/2 crushed garlic clove
    -4 ritz crackers


1. Preheat the oven to 350
2. Blend the cream cheese and spinach in a large bowl.
3. Add the garlic, nutmeg, and salt
4. Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray
5. Arrange the fillets on the pan and slice a slit down the fish.
6. spoon the cream cheese mixture onto the fish, flattening it so that it seeps in the slit (this isnt' TRUE stuffed fish...a lot will just be spooned over the top)
7. sprinkle Ritz or bread crumbs over fish
8. bake for 8 minutes until fish flakes with a fork.

*I didn't use all of the cream cheese mixture, so I recommend saving the left over and using it as a spinach dip! My husband loves it on wheat thins or chips! The recipe will actually be closer to 135 calories since you won't use all the mixture most likely.

    Is this a joke? There is no way anyone could eat this. I followed the directions and this was not eatable. I was able to wash the fish off and salvage dinner. - 7/28/09

    Tried it and loved it. I am not a very big fish lover - but this was really top notch! And super easy - my husband was impressed and thought I spent extra time on it.....little did he know it took me 10 min to prepare! - 6/25/09
