Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and garlic in the hot oil until onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add spinach to skillet; cook and stir until spinach is wilted and cooked down, 5 more minutes. Stir olives, feta cheese, lemon rind, salt, oregano, and white pepper into spinach. Cook until feta cheese has melted and flavors have blended, about 5 more minutes.
  3. Spread spinach mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Arrange tilapia fillets over spinach mixture. Mix butter and lemon juice in a small bowl and drizzle over fish; sprinkle with paprika.
  4. Bake fish in the preheated oven until the flesh is opaque and flakes easily, 20 to 25 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Doubling the recipe serves 6 to 8 comfortably and bakes in a 9x13-inch glass baking dish perfectly. These amounts work for 3 or 4 pieces of fish. The spinach really cooks down.

Very tasty recipe. I substituted black pepper and used salmon instead of talapia but this was easy to prepare and has a great flavor.I also only baked it for 15 minutes at 400 which was more than enough...so be careful with the cooking time.

It was good but the olives were overwhelming. I had such high hopes based on the other reviews. Everyone said leave out the olives (my family likes olives too). I may try it again and either leave them out or cut way back and chop smaller.

This was so good! Even my super picky 7 year old liked it. I would add more spinach next time... after it cooks all the way, there isn't really a lot to go around, so I'm going to double the recipe for that, but other than that, this recipe was a 10.

Wow!! Stupendous! I fixed this tonight in less than an hour with a fresh wild caught Tilapia that I caught and filleted myself. I followed the recipe exactly like it is offered with the one exception of too little spinach ( I had only a 10 oz bag of fresh spinach, but I did have a package of frozen ) I thawed the frozen in the microwave then added it to the baking dish before I placed it in the oven. My wife and I devoured the dish accompanied by tall cool glasses of homemade Sangria. I'm so thankful for this recipe!

I really liked this. The spinach was the highlight of the dish. Excellent. I made as directed. I used reduced fat feta cheese and cut butter back to 1 Tbs. I think next time I will season the tilapia a little more, maybe add some lemon pepper. I served this with basmati rice.

This was super quick to make, full of flavor, and a new favorite in my house! No complaints and reheated well the next day for lunch.
