Number of Servings: 4


    * 4 to 6 tilapia filets, 20 oz total
    * cooking spray
    * 8 to 12 ounces baby spinach, cleaned (or collard greens... this is a recent update. It really works!)
    * 1/4 cup chicken broth
    * 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
    * salt and pepper
    * Creole seasoning blend
    * 1 small tomato, chopped
    * 4 green onions, thinly sliced


Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and add the spinach. If necessary to make the spinach fit it into the baking dish, steam or saute the spinach for a minute or two to wilt slightly.

Sprinkle spinach with salt and pepper and onion powder; add the chicken broth. Sprinkle tilapia filets lightly with salt, pepper, and Creole seasonings. Arrange the filets over the spinach and sprinkle with chopped tomato and sliced green onion. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Serves 4.

    Made this for dinner tonight but didn't have creole seasoning so used an Italian blend and used garlic in place of the onion powder. - 6/28/12
