Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add 3 cloves garlic and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Add scallions and continue cooking, stirring, 1 minute more. Add tomatoes, chiles, cinnamon, cloves, cumin, and salt; stir to combine. Cook, stirring often, until sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Add fish to the pan in a single, even layer. Reduce heat to a low simmer. Cook until fish just begins to turn opaque, about 1 minute. Carefully turn fillets and continue cooking 1 minute more; remove from heat and let cool.

  • When fish is cool enough to handle, shred meat using your fingers. Remove any remaining bones and discard. If sauce seems too thin, drain some of the liquid and discard.

  • In another large skillet, heat remaining 4 tablespoons butter over medium heat until hot and bubbling. Add remaining 3 cloves garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add shredded fish and sauce; cook until heated through. Serve immediately with tortillas or tortilla chips.
