Tilapia, Spinach & Sweet Potatoes - Fast & Easy Dinner for a Rushy Day

Another quick post as we have to pick up my daughter Joanna and her husband Ezra at the airport. They’re going to be spending a few days with us after their month long vacation in Mexico. I can’t wait to hear about all the food – and the rest of the highlights as well – but mostly, the food.

I’m still on the eating healthy kick, and tonight I need another dinner I can fix in a hurry but still feel good about. So….the menu is tilapia on a bed of garlicky spinach and some roasted sweet potato chunks on the side. And we’re being really good – no dessert (at least until we pick Jo & Ezra up).

Lemon Tilapia with Lemon Zest Spinach and Maple Syrup Sweet Potatoes

This is also great with steamed green vegetables and new potatoes.

Well, I'm off to the airport and expecting to have a great few days with my princess and her prince. ....FYI the flight was an hour late and another 2 hours until we saw them...don't ask, but it's midnight and time for bed.

Hey, I wrote about Tilapia today and then discovered your recipe, which sounds great. I think this is a very delicious and versatile fish, and inexpensive too.

Now that really sounds good! Too bad my husband doesn't like spinach... or sweet potatoes... or tilapia, for that matter. ;)

Have fun catching up!

Thank you all for visiting and sharing your comments.

Tilapia is one of my favorite fishes to make. I love it because it's so easy and my honey loves it because it has no bones.
