“I haven't made this recipe yet but am planning on making a few changes due to some situations in my life. I have A LOT of olive dip (green olives blended with cream cheese and garlic powder) and wanted to use it in a recipe. We'll see how it turns out. I'm planning on using fresh spinach also. Should be interesting! :)”
4 filets

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Blend the cream cheese and spinach in a large bowl.
  3. Add the garlic, nutmeg, and salt
  4. Spray a baking dish with non-stick spray
  5. Arrange the fillets on the pan and slice a slit down the fish.
  6. Spoon the cream cheese mixture onto the fish, flattening it so that it seeps in the slit (this isnt' TRUE stuffed fish -- a lot will just be spooned over the top)
  7. Sprinkle Ritz or bread crumbs over fish
  8. Bake for 8 minutes until fish flakes with a fork.
  9. *I didn't use all of the cream cheese mixture, so I recommend saving the left over and using it as a spinach dip! My husband loves it on wheat thins or chips! The recipe will actually be closer to 135 calories since you won't use all the mixture most likely.
