NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 4 5 -ounce tilapia fillets
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon, plus wedges for serving
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 5 -ounce package baby spinach (about 8 cups)
Directions
  • Pat the tilapia dry with paper towels, then season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Spread the flour on a plate; dredge the tilapia in the flour, tapping off the excess. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tilapia and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; tent with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the skillet.

  • Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until it starts browning, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth, wine, and lemon zest and juice. Increase the heat to high, bring to a boil and cook until the liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Add the butter and whisk until slightly thickened, about 1 minute; stir in the parsley.

  • Meanwhile, toss the spinach with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and a few grinds of pepper. Divide among plates, top with the fish and drizzle with some pan sauce. Serve with lemon wedges.
