parmesan crusted tilapia with red pepper sauce

Another great recipe! I am going through jars of roasted red peppers like crazy.  My personal food trend right now.

parmesan crusted tilapia with red pepper sauce  (Recipe Runner
4 tilapia loins (from Costco)
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste

12 ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
3 tablespoons minced shallot
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar 

In a medium sized saute pan, heat the oil over medium high heat.  Add the shallot and garlic and saute for 2 minutes.  Add the roasted red peppers, salt and pepper and saute for another 2 minutes.  Add in the broth and vinegar and cook for another 2 minutes sturring occasionally until the liquid has reduced slightly.
Turn off the heat and add the roasted red pepper mixture to a blender and blend until smooth.  Set aside until ready to serve.

Preheat oven to broil.  Line a baking sheet with foil.
In a shallow dish combine the parmesan cheese, thyme, paprika, salt and pepper, tossing together until combined.  Place the tilapia fillets one at a time into the dish coating them with the parmesan cheese mixture.  Place the fish onto the prepared baking sheet.  Continue until all of the fish is coated.  Place them in the oven and broil for 7-10 minutes or until the thickeset part of the fish is opaque.  Serve the fish on top of the roasted red pepper sauce.
