    MissAli's Note:

    I have posted the origional Recipe for Johnny Carino's Jalapeno Garlic Tilapia, which we love. But, if you look at the fat content, it's pretty frightful. I came up with a lower fat, healthier version so I can have my fish and eat it too.

    low-fat lemon butter


    1. 1
      Cream all of the ingredients for the Lemon Butter together.
    2. 2
      Dredge the tilapia filets in the flour, and add them with the olive oil and garlic to a medium temperature sauté pan.
    3. 3
      Once the tilapia has finished cooking on one side, flip them over and add the jalapenos, spinach, salt, pepper, and garlic salt.
    4. 4
      Prepare the angel hair in boiling water, and allow it to cook for 3 to 4 minutes depending on the temperature of the water.
    5. 5
      As the filets begin to flake, add the heavy cream, and bring it to a slight boil.
    6. 6
      Once the cream begins to boil, remove the pan from the fire and reduce the lemon butter into the sauce.
    7. 7
      Place the pasta in a bowl, and pour the fish with the sauce over the pasta.
    8. 8
      Garnish with fresh roma tomatoes and parsley.

      I've never had fish with jalapenos before so it was nice to try something different. Thank you.

      I would give this a 4 1/2 if I could. It had a good kick to it, but seemed to be missing a little something. I did not add the spinach since I didn't have it. Maybe next time I will add onions.
