Step 1

On large plate, season fish filets with Adobo and lime juice. Set in refrigerator.

Step 2

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in jalapeños and garlic; cook for about 2 minutes more. Add tomato strips, tomato paste, clam broth, wine and oregano to skillet; increase heat to high. Bring wine mixture to boil, stirring often until tomato paste dissolves; reduce heat to medium low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Stir in capers and olives.

Step 3

Add reserved fish fillets to skillet with sauce. Carefully spoon sauce over fillets to cover completely. Gently simmer until fish is tender and flakes easily with a fork, about 5-7 minutes. Serve fish with sauce and rice.
