    2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
    4 6 oz. tilapia filets

Heat olive oil on medium heat in a large frying pan. Sprinkle tilapia filets liberally with Emeril's Southwest Seasoning. When oil is hot, add filets. Cook 3 minutes on each side. Remove fish to a plate.

Make chipotle dressing (see recipe below).

Melt the cheese under a broiler or toaster over and remove from oven. Add a fish filet to each bun. Place a romaine lettuce leaf on top of the fish. Add 1 tablespoon of chipotle dressing to each but top and place the bun on top of lettuce.


Put chipotle peppers in food processor. Pulse until peppers are well chopped. Add 3 tablespoons of the chipotle sauce to Miracle Whip. Freeze or refrigerate remaining chipotle sauce. Refrigerate remaining chipotle dressing for more sandwiches later!
