Tilapia over Spinach with a Garlic Wine Butter Sauce

Tilapia over Spinach with a Garlic Wine Butter Sauce

Introduction

Wow! A wine/butter sauce in a light dish? This is tasty and light and packs a heavy dose of spinach. I make it when the kids are out; this is a grown-up gourmet dish, and it cooks up quickly. Wow!

    So easy, the hubby helped. We added mushrooms to the spinach and had enough calories left for a glass of wine with dinner. - 3/8/10

    Thank You sooooo much for sharing your recipe. Anyone who reads this needs to try it. My Hubby even loved it. It was the first time I cooked spinach, ate it and loved it. My Mother in law made fresh cook spinach not to long ago and it was okay but this blew it out of the water. And the fish Yummo!!! - 3/5/10

    That's awesome to hear; I'm so glad you like it! My kids will even eat the spinach this way. You can use the same technique on chicken.

  • This is a perfect meal for a single individual. I cut it in half, made two servings and will have it for lunch tomorrow. It is very good and the wine made the butter sauce taste like a gourmet restaurant meal. - 3/22/10
