4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons Louisiana hot sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt


1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat pan with cooking spray. Add tomato mixture; sauté 2 minutes. Remove from pan.

2. Coat pan and fillets with cooking spray; add fish to pan. Cook 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn fillets over; add tomato mixture to pan, spooning mixture over and around fillets.
