Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dredge the tilapia filets in the flour, and add them with the melted margarine and garlic to a medium temperature sauté pan.
  2. Once the tilapia has finished cooking on one side, flip them over and add the jalapenos, spinach, salt, pepper, and garlic salt.
  3. Prepare the angel hair in boiling water, and allow it to cook for 3 to 4 minutes depending on the temperature of the water.
  4. As the filets begin to flake, add the heavy cream, and bring it to a slight boil.
  5. Once the cream begins to boil, remove the pan from the fire and reduce the lemon butter into the sauce.
  6. Place the pasta in a bowl, and pour the fish with the sauce over the pasta.
  7. Garnish with fresh roma tomatoes and parsley.

I don't usually like fish, but this recipe was delicious! I did use less lemon butter to cut calories, but I recommend more tomatoes and more spinach.

This was a really great recipe! We have never had the dish at Carino's so I can't compare it though. I followed the recipe exactly except for cutting the amount of jalepenos in half because I'm not a huge fan. For the lemon butter, I used the recipe posted by MissAli and it was easy and yummy! Next time, I'll increase the sauce amount and add more spinache!
