Sofrito and Grilled Fish

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at Sofrito is a basic cooking sauce that was brought to the Caribbean by the Spanish settlers. This version is a quick and easy one to use with any freshly grilled fish.

1/2 - 1 cup good quality tomato and onion style salsa
1/2 cup lean boneless ham, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, snipped

swordfish, sea bass or other fish steaks
1-2 teaspoons flour or cornmeal
sea salt
freshly ground pepper
2-3 tablespoons annatto oil or olive oil

Combine salsa and ham. Heat thoroughly and then add the cilantro. Set aside. Sprinkle fish steaks with flour, salt and pepper. Heat oil in heavy bottomed skillet. Saute fish about 2-3 minutes per side, do not over cook. Fish should flake easily with a fork. Drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of the sofrito into the pan with the fish to heat thoroughly. Arrange fish on a platter and drizzle with more of the sofrito. Serve.
