2 Tilapia Filets
1 tbsp. Butter/Margarine
1 tbsp. jalapeno juice (drained from can)

1 teaspoon of red wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder

- Dip filets completely in butter
- Place filets in warm frying pan and pour remaining butter mixture over the top
- Place jalapenos evenly in open areas of pan and sauté while filets cook
