    This is a "restaurant-quality" dinner. I used Tilapia as I couldn't get snapper at the supermarket. I also served the fish on top of the spinach and put the tomato/wine sauce on top of the fish when I served it. It was very easy to make and clean up.

    I give this 4 stars because it is a good, solid, nutritious recipe that tastes wonderful and is super easy and quick to make. I used tilapia instead of snapper, adding 1/4 tsp. of paprika to the salt/pepper rub in addition to using fresh garlic, of which I used 3 large cloves minced. I also added a little green onion to the garlic since they were going bad in my fridge and needed to be used. The result was a tasty dish, full of fresh flavor. Perhaps it was the paprika and fresh garlic but my roommates and I did not find this bland at all. Total time cooking was about 15 min. (prep and all). I will definitely make this again!

    This was delicious. I used haddock, which is a somewhat bland fish and this was great. I didn't have baby spinach, so tore up large spinach. Otherwise followed the directions almost exactly. Maybe a little more pepper and garlic next time, but thats the only change I would make.

    This recipe was really great and easy to make. After reading some negative reviews that it was too bland, I decided to add 1 tsp of chicken bouillon plus 1 tbsp water to the wine, and half of a lemon and a couple of fresh basil leaves to the fish when it first sautes. It was packed with flavor! This will definitely become a common dish that I make and I would certainly provide it for guests.

    I decided to make this pretty late one night for dinner, but it was so quick and easy! I substituted cod for snapper, and the white wine I used had a little lemon it in. It was so good! The only thing I would change is maybe a little less garlic. The meal looked like it came from a gourmet restaurant, and it was bursting with flavor. Thumbs up all around :) *Note - since I used a thicker fish, I added a few minutes to the cooking time.

    I also used tilapia sautéed it it an egg/flour batter. Fresh spinach and tomatoes from our garden. Server it with garlic pasta (garlic browned in olive oil tossed with thin spaghetti and Parmesan). Fantastic!

    I loved this! I made it exactly as the recipe suggested except that I added kalamata olives, made some roasted potatoes, and reduced the portion sizes. It was quick, easy, and delicious.
