Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Measure thickness of fish. In a bowl stir together lime juice, ancho chile pepper, and salt. Brush lime mixture evenly over both sides of fish fillets.

  • In an extra-large nonstick skillet heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Add fish; cook 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness or until fish flakes easily, turning once. Remove fish from skillet. Cover and keep warm.

  • In the same skillet heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil. Add the next four ingredients (through garlic); cook about 2 minutes or until vegetables are heated and are just starting to soften, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

  • Divide corn mixture among serving plates. Top with fish and sprinkle with cilantro. If desired, serve with lime wedges and/or additional jalapeño slices.


Chile peppers contain oils that can irritate your skin and eyes. Wear plastic or rubber gloves when working with them.


Chop a few jarred, pickled jalapeños and skip the fresh.
