  • 6 6 ozes filets, 1" thick
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 whole lime juice only
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt & pepper
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 whole poblano chiles
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup mozzarella grated


The poblano sauce adds a unique flavor that is complimentary to the fish and not spicy. For the fish use mahi-mahi, sea bass or other firm meated fish with filets one inch thick.


Oven to 375.  Rinse and dry filetes and marinate in mixture of lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper for 15 min to 1 hour.  Slice poblanos in half, remove seeds and veins, roughly chop and puree in blender with milk.  In a large fry pan melt the butter add the flour and cook to a golden roux, about 3 min.  Add the puree, cream, nutmeg and cook on low heat until thickened, about 10 min.  Season to taste with salt.  Place the marinated fish (do not rinse) in a buttered baking dish, cover with poblano sauce, sprinkle with cheese and bake until fish is cooked, 15 to 20 min.
