Heat to a simmer, then cover with aluminum foil, with a small hole cut in the middle as a steam vent. Simmer gently until fillets are cooked, about 5 minutes. Transfer fillets to a shallow, greased baking dish; cover and keep warm.

Drain any liquid from fillets. Spoon hot sauce over fish. Broil 6 inches from heat until sauce is patched with brown.
