Chipotle peppers add a smoky, spicy note to the butter topping. For a cooling side salad, toss diced cucumbers and tomatoes with reduced-fat sour cream.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 (6-ounce) red snapper or other firm whitefish fillets
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 1 canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce, finely minced
  • Lemon wedges

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Combine first 4 ingredients; sprinkle evenly over fish. Place fish on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; bake 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  3. While fish bakes, combine butter and chile. Spread butter mixture evenly over fish. Serve with lemon wedges.
