You can substitute any flaky white fish, such as tilapia or sole, in this easy, elegant supper.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Place rice in a medium bowl; stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.

Step 2

Sprinkle fish with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Dredge fish in flour.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish to pan; cook 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

Step 4

Add wine, juice, and capers to pan; cook 1 minute. Add butter to pan, stirring until butter melts. Remove fish and sauce from pan; keep warm. Wipe pan clean with a paper towel. Add spinach to pan; sauté 1 minute or until wilted. Place 1/2 cup rice onto each of 4 plates. Top each serving with about 1/3 cup spinach, 1 fillet, and 1 tablespoon sauce.

I was amazed at how great this dish tasted. I added saffron to multigrain brown rice. Other then that, I followed the recipe exactly. I think any other changes would change the total taste of this dish. Wonderful, wonderful!I would serve it to company without hesitation.

Excellent fish. Made to recipe except removed the tilapia from the pan when done & then made the sauce. This is a dinner that really called out for color; we served with simply-dressed tomato salad. Very good.

the idea is good, but my flounder turned out soft and mushy...I think if the temperature was higher, the fish would get crispy. Mmight try it one more time.

Super easy and tasty. I think start to finish was less than 30 minutes, too! I used Uncle Ben's wild rice to be ready in 90 seconds and that worked great for us. I used frozen flounder fillets and think they worked just fine.

It does have potential, but needs work. 1) not enough oil to cook the fish. 2) Must take fish out of pan while making sauce or your fish will get soggy and fall apart 3) Not enough sauce for 4 people 5) a bit too lemon and needs something else (garlic perhpas?). The spinach was good - although I did not wipe out the pan so that I could soak up any left over good bits in the bottom of the pan. I will try this agian with some modifications as it did come together fast and the combo of the rice, spinach and fish could be very good. I DID make slight modifications, but nothing that would significantly alter the recipe: Used Jasmine rice and cooked it in a rice cooker and added some chives to the sauce after tasting it.
