    Delicious fish fillets brushed with a spicy chipotle sauce, crumbed and served with avocado sauce. You can make it with any of firm whitefish-like cod or halibut-if tilapia isn't available.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 tinned chipotle chilli in adobo sauce
    • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce from the tin
    • 1/4 cup salsa
    • 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • 4 tilapia fillets (or other whitefish)
    • 125g corn chips, crushed
    • 1 small avocado - peeled, pitted and cut into large chunks
    • 1/4 cup sour cream
    • 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • 3 tablespoons milk
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Grease a baking tray with cooking spray.
    2. Combine the chipotle chilli, adobo sauce, salsa and 1 tablespoon lime juice in a blender and blend until smooth; brush the mixture over both sides of each tilapia fillet.
    3. Spread the crushed corn chips into the bottom of a deep dish and coat the fillets with the crumbs. Arrange the fillets on the prepared baking pan.
    4. Bake the fillets 15 minutes; turn and lightly spray with cooking spray. Continue to bake until golden brown, another 10 to 15 minutes.
    5. While the fish bakes, place the avocado, sour cream and 1 tablespoon lime juice in a blender and blend until smooth. Stir in the milk 1 tablespoon at a time until the consistency is similar to ranch dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the sauce over the baked fillets to serve.
