I know, I know, that sounds gross.  But it was ridiculously good.  The husband even said that the meatballs tasted like chicken nuggets.  Pureed fish is a little weird, and I’m not going to lie, I’ve had “La Poisson” from the Little Mermaid stuck in my head since I made them, but y’all….try it.  So good.  And so clean.

  • 3 slices whole grain sugar free bread, torn into pieces
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tilapia fillets, cut into chunks
  • 1 egg white
  • whole grain pasta, cooked
  • container of organic baby spinach
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cover a cookie sheet with foil, slightly crumpled, and spray with non-stick spray (if you have kids or just like Despicable Me, I hope you read that in Gru’s accent. “Crowbar?  Non stick spray?”).
  2. In a food processor, process bread, salt, and pepper until you get fine crumbs.  Add tilapia and the egg white, and process until pasty.  Roll into meatballs and bake for 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, add a splash of high heat cooking oil to a large skillet.  Add spinach, garlic, and about a cup of water.  Saute until spinach is wilted.
  4. Serve pasta topped with spinach/garlic mixture, a dash of olive oil, meatballs, and sea salt and pepper.  We added red pepper flakes and a tiny bit of paprika to ours.

 

Enjoy and Happy Friday!!!
