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!

I made this for my wife and she RAVED about it. Said it was exactly like the restaurant's but I needed to use a little less lemon.

GREAT Recipe. We loved it! The only thing I changed is I replaced the wine with a Bud Light because that's what I had! (I guess you know your a redneck if...)

Changed this around a bit to fit the sides that I had already planned out (left out the cream sauce and pasta). It was still amazing!

Had this dish at Carino's and searched high and low for it!! Thanks for posting! Added more tomatoes, spinach, and jalapenos.

I fixed this recipe tonight. It was fabulous! I did add more garlic (because my DH and I love garlic) and used about 3/4 cup of half n half (because that is what I had and wanted a little more sauce). It still turned out great. Thank you MissAli for this recipe.

DEEEEE-LISH!!! I'm not a big fish fan unless it's fried, but this dish was perfect down to the last ingredient! I can't wait to prepare it in my own kitchen and order it again at Johnny Carino's!!

This was excellent and easy. I reduced the jalapenos and butter a bit which took out some bite to suite the kids and lightened it. The tomatoes were a great addition to top the meal.
