(2) 4 Oz. Tilapia Filets
1/2 Cup White Flour
2 Oz. Melted Margarine
1 Tsp. Chopped Garlic
1/4 Cup Diced Jalapeņos
1 Cup Chopped De-Stemmed Spinach
1 Pinch Salt, Pepper, Garlic Salt
4 Oz. Heavy Cream
1/4 Cup Lemon Butter
5 Oz. Angel Hair Pasta
1 Tsp. Fresh Parsley
1/8 Cup Diced Roma Tomatoes

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