Arrange 3 husks per fillet on a baking sheet per fillet. Pil leaves to help them stay together. Arrange fillet on husks and cover with 1 tsp of chipotle butter. Remaining butter can be used for service.

Cook fish atop three-leaf arrangement over medium heat, covered, for 10-15 minutes -- until done. Garnish with additional butter.
