Tilapia & Creamed Spinach

Tilapia on a bed of Creamed Spinach

How can something so simple be so delicious?
Answer:  simple real ingredients with a little love make a fabulous meal❤️.

Pan Fried Tilapia 

2-3 talapia filets 
Old Bay Seasoning

Heat skillet medium-high.  Add EVOO.  Once pan is hot add seasoned Tilapia (I tent a piece of foil on top of skillet to catch oils).  Once the thinnest part of the tilapia looks a bit crisp (about 2-3 minutes), flip, cook for 2-3 minutes.  Put filets on a cookie sheet and set in 200F oven  to keep warm.   Do not wash the skillet!
serves 2 and a little one

Honey Girl Creamed Spinach 

1 pound fresh spinach or frozen
1/4 onion sliced
3 minced garlic cloves
1/4 cup cream
fresh cracked pepper
3 T pecorino grated (Parmesan works well) 

Saute onions 3 minutes in the same skillet, keep flame medium-high.  Add garlic, saute for 1 minute.   Add spinach and cover, once it's wilted add cream.  Once cream has warmed to skillet temperature turn off the flame, add pecorino and cracked pepper.  No salt (Pecorino & Parmesan are salty cheeses).

Plate creamed spinach first then top with tilapia.  Sprinkle pecorino for a finished look. 
Enjoy.  xoxo.
