Inspired by a discovery in Food Magazine by my cousin--- delicious.

"Tried this as part of Atkins plan. Not in my usual taste palette, but thought I'd give it a try. Glad that I did!! Absolutely delicious! Substituted one chicken bullion cube for the salt and added a little cooking sherry"

Preparation

1. Bring 1 cup water -or- mixture water and white wine to a boil. Add tomatoes and red-pepper flakes and season to taste with salt and pepper. Top with tilapia, cover and cook 3 min or until tilapia is nearly done.

2. Top with fresh arugula and cover until arugula is wilted and fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove fish and arugula with a slotted spoon.

3. To make sauce, add butter, lemon juice and capers and sauté until reduced slightly. Serve over the fish and greens. Crunchy bread is good to soak up any residual goodness.

This recipe is perfect for lemon lovers! Made with 3 filets and used spinach because we couldn't find arugula. If I were to make it again, I would use only 1 lemon, if that. It was incredibly sour! So lemony it actually hurt my mouth. Then again, I'm not the biggest fan of sour or tart flavors. Other than that, it's a great flavor combination and I'm excited to try it again with a little less lemon.
