Tilapia with Smoky Pepper Sauce

Tilapia with Smoky Pepper Sauce

  • 4 tilapia or other mild thin fish fillets 
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp canola or olive oil
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup mild picante sauce
  • 1/2 to 1 chipotle pepper canned in adodo sauce, finely chopped and mashed with a fork
  • 2 tsps olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic

Rinse the fish and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle the paprika and pepper on both sides of the fish. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat, swiling to coat the bottom. Cook the fish for 3 minutes on each side, or until it flakes easily when tested with a fork. Transfer the fish to plates.

In a small microwaveable bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Microwave on 100 percent power for 2 minutes, or until thoroughly heated. Spoon over the fish.
