Spinach Baked Tilapia

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by SmoochTheCook

I found this posted online and made it right away. This is sooooo easy to prepare and tastes DELICIOUS! Next time I make it, I'm going to toss in some minced garlic with the tomatoes, I believe. It had a bit too much liquid to it, but I just sprinkled some over the fish and enjoyed it.

This was sooo easy and so good! DH was home for lunch, so I looked this up at noon and we were eating by 12:45. I didn't have Creole seasoning or fresh tomatoes so I used Emeril's Original Essence and canned diced tomatoes. Our 2 and 4 year old daughters even liked it!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 (453.59-680.38 g) tilapia fillets (total of 1 pound)
  • cooking spray
  • 283.49 g Baby Spinach, cleaned
  • 59.14 ml chicken broth (I used flakes)
  • 1.23 ml onion powder
  • salt and pepper
  • 14.78 ml creole seasoning
  • 1 small tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced


  1. 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.
  2. Sprinkle spinach with salt and pepper and onion powder; add the chicken broth.
  3. 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 25 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  4. Serves 4.
