Orange Roughy in a Red Roasted Pepper Sauce $9.28(pricey, but awesome!)

Theres a Tapas Restaurant by my house where I once had an Orange Roughy Appetizer with a Red Roasted Pepper Sauce, that I could not forget. I thought the idea of a red pepper sauce was interesting, but I had no idea it would be so delicious, infact I was sure it had butter in it or cream because it was so rich tasting. I couldnt believe it would be a very light sauce. Well, I am fairly certain there was no butter or cream because when I made it, I made it with the intention of adding butter if it didnt taste like the sauce I had tried a while back, but it tasted even better then I remembered. I looked up a bunch or recipes on the internet, and then kinda of created one on my own based on a combination of recipes I had found. Im thinking it is a keeper.

Recipe of Red Roasted Pepper sauce

2 medium size red peppers $1.60*
2 tablespoons olive oil .20
1 garlic clove .10
4 basil leaves .10

bake peppers for 40-50 minutes at 350, when done place in plastic bag and close bag
keep in bag 10 minutes then take out and peppers should unpeal very easily
blend peppers, olive oil, basil, garlc in blender until smooth and creamy
add salt, and set aside

4 pieces Orange Roughy $3.99
