Forget the fish – this spinach is a knock-your-socks off way to rekindle a long lost love affair with green leafy vegetables. The protein (for once in a paleo blue moon) is taking the back seat tonight. Hot-Grilled Tilapia in Creamy Garlic Spinach Sauce
2 cups frozen spinach
1 tbsp chopped garlic
¼ cup coconut or almond milk
4 tilapia fillets
1 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp chili pepper
1 tsp paprika
2 tbsp franks redhot
salt and pepper
This recipe is almost insultingly simple, and I apologize for those of you who expected an expert-level spinach set of instructions:
Steam spinach. (I use the microwave and a ziplock bag… Because I’m in my 20s and can still ignore the inkling that it has negative chemical-based consequences for my health)
In food processor, mix spinach, avocado, garlic, 1 tbsp chili powder, hot sauce and almond/coconut milk. (taste and add salt and pepper as needed)
Brush or sprinkle Tilapia fillets with mixed cumin, chili, and paprika.
Grill fish to desired blackening.
There’s not much else to say… smother that blackened peppered fishy with some green creamy sauce of goodness and eat that bad boy. Don’t let that fish take away from the spinach though!
