Cut ancho chiles open, discard stems and seeds. Cut the chiles into small

and cover with boiling water; set aside for 45 to 60 minutes to soak.
Drain. Meanwhile, thaw fish if frozen. Lightly brown the fish fillets on
both sides in hot oil. Arrange fish in a 13 X 9 X 2-inch baking dish.
Season with a little salt. In a blender container, combine drained ancho
chiles (or crushed red peppers) with the UNDRAINED tomatoes, orange juice,
onions, garlic, salt, oregano, cumin, cinnamon, and cloves. Cover and
blend until smooth. In the skillet used for cooking the fish, simmer the
tomato mixture for about 20 minutes, or until thickened, stirring
occasionally. Pour over the fish in the baking dish. Bake, uncovered, in
a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 30 minutes. Transfer the fish fillets
to a serving platter. Top with lettuce, garnish with orange slices and
radish roses.
