Tilapia and Spinach Delight!

This recipe is from Jessica Seinfeld's Do It Delicious! She is so great about making healthy foods taste amazing! Fish is one of those foods that I love to eat but am not so great at cooking. I am slowly progressing towards learning easy fool-proof ways to cook fish. I tested this out at home with the help of my mom, but today felt ready to try it out on my husband and it was a HIT!

The best part....simple ingredients, ready in 15minutes and very little clean up! So here we go...

Preheat the oven to 450
Yes, we drink a lot of "fizzie water". Don't judge us, it's better than soda!
Rub a sheet pan with the a cut up garlic clove
Toss spinach, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a large bowl
I had a little spill when I opened the bag of spinach...*oops* ;)
Lay the spinach on the sheet pan to make a bed. 
*HINT* the spinach will shrivel up in the oven so add a lot more than you think you should. 
Season Tilapia (Jessica uses Halibut) with salt and olive oil. Be sure to have the skin cut off, then lay them on the spinach bed.
Cut up lemon slices and lay them on top of each fish filet. Bake for about 7-8min or until the fish is nice and flakey.
The lemon seeps into to the fish and the spinach and the garlic seeps up through the bottom making this delicious seasoning that is tastes so fresh. 
 YUMMM!! A fresh meal to welcome in the sunny weather.

P.S. I love to hear when you are trying these recipes at home so keep the comments coming!
