Ingredients

How to make it

  • Start water to boil for pasta while preparing other aspects of the dish.(or, at least, this is what I do ;)
  • Start lemon cream sauce by heating wine or stock and lemon juice and allow to fully simmer while starting the next step.
  • In dutch oven or high sided skillet(I used my cast iron), saute jalapenos and onions in butter and olive oil until onion turns slightly opaque.
  • Add garlic, spinach and tomatoes and simmer while continuing the lemon cream sauce.
  • Once stock and juice has reduced by half, slowly whisk in cream and simmer about 5 minutes.
  • Add tilapia fillets to tomato/spinach pan, reduce heat, cover and let "steam/simmer" while finishing cream sauce.
  • To simmering cream sauce, add butter, 1-2T at a time, whisking constantly to achieve a thick, combined sauce.
  • Add salt and pepper and basil to taste.
  • Toss with hot, drained pasta See Photo
  • Serve a fillet of tilapia over bed of pasta, topped with spinach/tomato sauce.
  • ***please note, I tried to set this recipe up in a good order of preparing it, rather than the usual one aspect of the dish at a time, in hopes of making it easier to make sure all the components are done at the same time! :)

    Keni..thanks are in order again! I made this (cuz I still have about a million jalapenos) over the weekend and my husband and I both loved it! I followed the recipe as written..with the exception of adding a bit more cream sauce to my bowl (I was worried about the heat). It was delicious and very subtle. We will definitely be making this again! YUM

    Oh Keni! This was fan-freakin-tastic! So good!! I only had to make a couple of changes...didn't have jalapenos, so I added a dash of cayenne pepper, and I had to use milk in the sauce because I was out of cream. Still turned out great! I served mine with whole wheat thin spaghetti. I will totally be making this over and over...yum!

    i made this for myself for lunch today and as always it was great. i thought the lemon juice would be too overpowering but the addition of the jalapenos and tomatoes offeset it nicely. very tasty with just the right amount of heat. A+ and 5 forks as always.

    Tilapia is perfect for this recipe with that lemon cream sauce.
    Five forks and a smile : )

    I've never had anything like this, but I love all the ingredients. I love fish, but have never had Tilapia to be honest. I will see if I can find it here in the stores. This is a recipe I must try - Thanks Keni!

    I particularly like the sound of your lemon cream sauce here. Talapia is one of my favorite fish, so I will be trying this soon. Thanks Keni :) ^5 + flagged for beauty!
