  • 4 (4 to 5) ounce fresh or frozen tilapia fillets
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup crumbled goat cheese (3 ounces)
  • ½ cup soft bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1½ teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ cup dry white wine


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Preheat oven to 400°F. Rinse the fish; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  2. Bring the water and garlic to boiling in a large skillet. Add spinach; reduce heat to medium. Cook, covered, 2 to 3 minutes or until the spinach is wilted. Cool slightly; squeeze out excess liquid.
  3. For stuffing, combine egg white, goat cheese, bread crumbs, pine nuts, yogurt, and lemon peel in a medium bowl. Stir in the cooked spinach.
  4. Arrange the fish, skinned sides down, on a work surface; sprinkle with paprika. Turn the fish skinned sides up. For each fish roll, spoon about ¼ cup of the stuffing onto a short end of the fillet. Roll up each fillet to encase the stuffing; secure with a wooden toothpick if necessary. Place the fish rolls, seam sides down, in a 2-quart shallow baking dish.
  5. Pour wine into the bottom of baking dish. Bake, covered, 20 to 25 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. To serve, spoon cooking liquid over the fish.

My tilapia was kind of small so it was a little hard to roll glad for toothpicks. I ended up with extra stuffing, next time I will use bread crumbs instead of soft bread cut into cubes it was a good meal just need a little modifying.
