Cook rice according to package directions (or like this), omitting salt and fat. Place rice in a medium bowl; stir in half of the salt and half of the pepper,

Sprinkle fish with remaining salt and remaining pepper. Dredge fish in flour.

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.

Add wine, juice, and capers to pan; cook 1 minute. Add butter to pan, stirring until butter melts. Remove fish and let the sauce reduce for about 3 minutes. Then remove as well. 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 tbsp sauce.
