Red Snapper With Spicy Orange Sauce

  Red snapper fillets 1 Pound (2 Pieces, 3/4 Inch Thick)
  Flour 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Pepper 1⁄3 Teaspoon
  Olive oil/Other vegetable oil 1 Tablespoon
  Butter 4 Tablespoon, softened (At Room Temperature)
  Frozen orange juice concentrate 1 Tablespoon
  Chili powder 1 Teaspoon
  Chopped parsley 2 Tablespoon

1 Cut each fish fillet in half to make 4 equal servings.
2 In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Dredge the fish lightly with the seasoned flour.
3 In a large skillet, preferably nonstick, warm the oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the fish and pan-fry, turning once, until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
4 Meanwhile, make the spicy orange sauce: In a small bowl, blend the butter, orange juice concentrate, chili powder, the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
5 Transfer the fish to individual dinner plates and top each serving with 1 tablespoon of the spicy orange sauce. Sprinkle with the parsley, if desired.
