    1. 1
      Dredge the tilapia filets in the flour, and add them with the melted margarine and garlic to a medium temperature sauté pan.
    2. 2
      Once the tilapia has finished cooking on one side, flip them over and add the jalapenos, spinach, salt, pepper, and garlic salt.
    3. 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. 4
      As the filets begin to flake, add the heavy cream, and bring it to a slight boil.
    5. 5
      Once the cream begins to boil, remove the pan from the fire and reduce the lemon butter into the sauce.
    6. 6
      Place the pasta in a bowl, and pour the fish with the sauce over the pasta.
    7. 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!
