Grilled Tilapia & Poached Egg Over Warmed Spinach

 by True Foodie

This was one of those meals you just make on a whim. I wanted something healthy but delicious.


Cooking Spray
Salt & Pepper

In a skillet sprayed with cooking spray, toss in some baby spinach, however much you like...just remember it reduces in size, but since we're just "warming"it and not sauteing it, don't over do it.  Toss the spinach around until it's soft and warm then plate it.  In the same pan, add tilapia that has been seasoned to your liking. I only used a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Don't over cook it. I found that using high heat made it crispy on the outside and cooked to perfection on the inside...about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. While the tilapia is cooking, poach an egg or two, however many you like. I use about a table spoon of cider vinegar in my poaching water to help it shape nicely as I turned it over and over with a wooden spoon. Take the poached egg out and place on a paper towel, then over the warmed spinach. Next, place the cooked tilapia over the poached egg and warmed spinach. I break the egg before eating...the thickened, warmed yolk becomes a rich, dressing or sauce of sorts.  Enjoy!
