  2. Steam until just wilted, approx 4 minutes,drain well, cool enough to handle.
  3. Heat oven to 400F degrees.
  4. Tear off 4 pieces of parchment paper or tin foil about 12"x 18".
  5. Place the paper on your counter and put 1/4 of the spinach on each, in the center. Cover with onion, jalapeno and the garlic.
  6. Place a filet on each and cover with a sliced tomatoe.
  7. Season with salt & pepper.
  8. Seal the packages and place on a baking sheet or a baking stone.
  9. Bake for apprx 12- 15 minutes.

This was fantastic! I had some sole to use up and I found this recipe. I used jar minced garlic - and used about 1.5 tsp per packet (I LOVE garlic) and also added in a half a green pepper I had in the fridge. I topped the tomato layer with the salt and pepper as well as a pinch of dill and marjoram. This was a real treat, and healthy to boot!

This was delicious! I don't really love fish, though I do love how good it is for you, so finding a recipe like this with such a great, non-fishy flavor is wonderful. Thank you for posting!
