A delicious and easy weekday meal. A little bit spicy, but you can adjust the seasonings to your taste. I have been making this about once a week since I discovered it! The recipe was from the Alsaka seafood fishery- published in an advertisement.

Fantastic! This has become a firm favourite of ours and I always play around with quantities of spices to give slightly different results. One tip: Don't leave it on the griddle whilst answering the telephone, I nearly burnt the house down!! :o)

This is pretty simple and quite good. I wish there was a way to get the seasoning on both sides without it burning, though. I think next time I make this I will add more spice to it to give it a bigger kick. Thanks for the great recipe MSMD3
