One fish, two fish, red fish . . .
Or white fish, actually, works perfectly in this healthy and simple dish. It's easy enough for a weeknight, but with a little effort in the presentation department, it can be an elegant company meal, as well. The recipe was given to me by the Mister's college roommate's wife years ago. She served it to us after we had spent a fun day boating on Tampa Bay.

Kim's Fish on Spinach
Lightly coat a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Layer the following ingredients in the order they are listed:
two tomatoes, sliced, or a cup of grape tomatoes, halved
one pound fresh spinach, washed and dried
one cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
fish filets, one per person (red fish, sea bass, tilapia, or similar)
Drizzle with the juice of two lemons, then sprinkle filets with:
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
two garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper to taste
Bake at 400 for 20 minutes or so, until fish is firm and flakes easily. Serve with rice or couscous.
And now, please tell me, if you made Kim's Fish on Spinach for company, what would you serve for dessert?
