Broiled tilapia with thai coconut curry sauce and rice

Makes 4 servings
This is a delicious dish with a lot of flavor.  Do not skimp on the red bell peppers or onions.  I did not add the red curry paste and used olive oil rather than sesame oil.  If your fillets are very thin, try baking them at 350 deg.
