Recipe by Music lover
I haven't made this recipe yet but am planning on making a few changes due to some situations in my life. I have A LOT of olive dip (green olives blended with cream cheese and garlic powder) and wanted to use it in a recipe. We'll see how it turns out. I'm planning on using fresh spinach also. Should be interesting! :)

Not bad, but rather bland. I added red pepper flakes and onion to the spinach/cream cheese mixture to spice things up a little, but even then it was missing something. When I reheated it, I shredded some good sharp cheddar cheese over the top... mmmm.... made it MUCH better! Overall, it's a nice way to make tilapia, but I suggest doctoring it up a little to enhance whatever flavor(s) you prefer.
- 16 ounces tilapia fillets (or other fish)
- 4 ounces fat free cream cheese
- 0.5 (8 ounce) can spinach
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 pinch salt
- 1⁄2 crushed garlic clove
- 4 Ritz crackers
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat the oven to 350°F
- Blend the cream cheese and spinach in a large bowl.
- Add the garlic, nutmeg, and salt
- Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray
- Arrange the fillets on the pan and slice a slit down the fish.
- 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)
- Sprinkle Ritz or bread crumbs over fish
- 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.
