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.
