Tilapia Extravaganza!

Extravaganza! I hope you read that with a dramatic voice. Extravaganza!

Tilapia Extravaganza!
Serves 4

1 pound tilapia fillets
garlic powder
2 tablespoons capers
4 cups fresh baby spinach
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon honey
juice of one lemon
angel hair pasta (rice would be good too)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place tilapia on two large sheets of parchment paper (large enough to wrap the tilapia). Season tilapia with salt, pepper and garlic powder, to taste. Sprinkle capers on top of tilapia and mound 1 cup of spinach on each fillet. Wrap fish tightly in parchment paper, place on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, to make sauce, mix together mayonnaise, honey, lemon juice and a pinch of salt in small bowl.

3. Prepare pasta.

Serve tilapia over pasta and drizzle with the mayonnaise sauce.

Results: Sounds weird, doesn’t it? I’m not sure what it was that attracted me to this recipe, since there was no picture that went with it, and I’m all about the food porn. I think part of it was that after recently cleaning out my freezer, I discovered that I had TWO bags of tilapia that needed to be eaten, so I’ve been hunting for tilapia recipes lately. But I imagine the biggest part was the title. TILAPIA EXTRAVAGANZA!!!! How could I not try it?

Seriously, this was really tasty! The capers and spinach add such a nice flavor to this otherwise boring fish. And though I was skeptical, the mayonnaise sauce had a really sweet tang to it. I would eat this again tonight! This was also super easy to make. Hardly any dishes were dirtied and no chopping is required.

This is another community recipe from Weight Watchers.

    If you have more tilapia, I have a great foil packet recipe. I can send it to you if you’re interested…
