Tilapia with Red Butter Sauce

Here is a fish dish which I tried last night after finding the recipe in the commissary. It is really fast and good, although I found the sauce to be a bit thick and have cut the flour down to 1Tbsp. Yum.

Tilapia with Red Butter Sauce

4Tilapia fillets
1 small box of frozen Green Giant spinach
3Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp flour
1/2 minced red pepper
1/2 minced onion
1 minced garlic clove
1/2 c chicken stock

First, season the fish with salt and pepper and cook with a bit of olive oil spray.

Drain the spinach, add 1 Tbsp butter and saute the onions for 3 mins then add the garlic and cook another 3 mins then add the spinach. Lay this spinach in the bottom of your platter. Make popeye sounds.

For the red butter sauce, melt the remaining butter and then add the bell pepper. Saute for 4 mins then add the flour and cook for 2 mins. Add 1/2 cup chicken stock and cook 3-5 mins.

Top the spinach with the cooked fish and add a good spoon of the red butter sauce.

Yell for the kids and threaten them if they do not at least try the fish.
