Fish in Ancho Chile Paste

This is a quick and easy, tasty mexican-style dinner. Outside of the guacamole, it’s all ingredients that are easy to keep on hand and you can use fish, shrimp or chicken…even beef I guess although I’ve never tried that.

Put 2 dried ancho chiles in a dish w/ enough boiling water to cover them. Let them rehydrate for about 10 minutes.

In a blender:
1/2 onion
2 garlic cloves
juice of 1 lemon
3T or so olive oil
2-3 rehydrated ancho chiles

Puree. If it’s too thick, add a little of the water used to rehydrate the chiles.

Pour this over 1 lb of fish of your choice, I used mahi mahi, cut into 1-inch cubes. Let it sit for at least 30min.

Dump the whole thing, sauce and fish, into a pan on medium-high heat. Cook until fish is done.

Serve w/ tortillas, rice, beans, guacamoles and garnish w/ some limes (the lime juice makes it).
