Cooking Methods

  1. For the sauce, heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour in the oil and swirl to coat the bottom. Cook the onion, carrot and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the onion is tender, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the remaining sauce ingredients. Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 450F.
  3. In a shallow dish or pie pan, whisk together the buttermilk and orange juice.
  4. In another shallow dish or pie pan, stir together the orange zest, cornmeal, Anaheim pepper and salt. Place the dishes side by side.
  5. Lightly spray an 11 X 7 X 2-inch baking pan with vegetable oil spray. Set beside the cornmeal mixture.
  6. Rinse the fish and pat dry with paper towels. Dip the fish into the buttermilk mixture, turning to coat. Roll the fish in the cornmeal mixture, shaking off any excess. Place the fish in a single layer in the baking pan. Lightly spray the top of the fish with vegetable oil spray.
  7. Bake, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the top coating is slightly crisp and the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  8. To serve, place the fish on plates. Pour about 2 tablespoons sauce over each serving.
