Skinny on Simple Baked fish with Spinach
I love how the fish and spinach bake altogether in a single pan while you stir together a simple tasty sauce. The only change I made was adding sliced mushrooms.
According to my calculations each serving has 276 calories and *6 Weight Watchers Points Plus.
- 1 pound prewashed spinach
- 6 ounces sliced mushrooms (optional)
- 4 teaspoons canola oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 4 fish fillets (6 ounces each) (sole, cod, tilapia or red snapper)
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- Spray a large rimmed baking pan (18 x 12-inch) with nonstick cooking spray.
- On the baking sheet, toss the spinach and mushrooms (if using) with 2 teaspoons of the canola oil and ½ teaspoon of the garlic powder.
- Place the fish fillets over the spinach and rub them with the remaining 2 teaspoons of the oil and sprinkle evenly with the remaining ½ teaspoon garlic powder and salt to taste.
- Place the pan on the bottom rack of the oven and turn the oven to 400 degrees. Bake until the fish is opaque and the spinach has wilted, 15 to 18 minutes.
- While the fish is baking, stir together the sauce.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame oil red pepper flakes and sugar, until it is well blended.
- Remove the fish from the oven and drizzle the sauce over the fish and spinach.
- Serve immediately.
