Fish and Salsa Cups

A few years ago we purchased this cookbook for our Little Chef.  Along with the book, you receive 5 silicone baking cups.  The book contains many wonderfully, simple, and delicious family recipes.  One of our family favorites is “Fish and Salsa”.  We use whatever salsa and fish we have available.  This time our fish on hand was Aldi tilapia and mild salsa.. This is my spin on the recipe.


Preheat oven to 375.

5 tilapia fillets cut in 1 1/2 to 2 inch pieces

1/2 cup salsa

5 T. Shredded cheese

garlic powder

Layer tilapia, dash garlic powder, 1/2 T. Salsa (2 – 3layers depending on thickness).  Top with 1 T. Cheese.

Place cups on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until salsa is bubbling.  Serve in cups.  We also use small baking ramekins sprayed with EVOO since 5 cups is not enough.  Serve with a salad, sauteed veggies, or tortillas for a healthier fish taco!

Our two oldest each ate two cups and the littlest ate 1 and 1/2 this time.  Thankfully I used 6 fillets this time!
