Sear fish fillets about 1 to 2 minutes per side or until lightly golden, remove to a oven proof platter and set in oven to finish cook for 3 to 5 minutes or, to desired doneness.

Meanwhile add the remaining olive oil, slivered garlic, salt and pepper to the pan and cook over medium low heat stirring often for about 2 minutes.

Add chopped ancho chiles and continue cooking a minute or two until a toasty aroma is released.
