Ingredients

1 package (10 ounces) frozen spinach, thawed
¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper
1 pound fish filets (thawed if frozen)
1 teaspoon Creole or Cajun seasoning blend
1 large tomato, diced
4 green onions, sliced

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Squeeze thawed spinach to remove most of the liquid. Spread in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange fish filets over spinach. Sprinkle with seasoning blend. Top fish with tomatoes and green onions.
  5. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 20 minutes more or until fish flakes easily.
  6. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Try any kind of fish or even chicken.  
  • Change the flavor by adding lemon juice or lemon pepper.  
  • Try salsa instead of fresh tomato and green onion. 
 

Comments

Great meal, the family gobbled it up and there were no leftovers.  It did take much longer to cook, I think because our fish was a bit thick.  We have a thermometer and took it out when the temp was 145 degrees.
