Grilled Fish With Cumin-Lemon Rub

READY IN: 25mins
Top Review by eightball1751

Cumin and lemon juice give this fish a tremendous burst of flavor. Next time I'd add a little salt. Or consider sprinkling with salt after it's finished cooking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare grill.
  2. Soak eight or 12 8-inch wooden skewers in water for 10 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl or cup, mix cumin with onion purée and a little lemon juice to make a paste.
  4. Add more juice as needed.
  5. Stir in oil.
  6. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels.
  7. If using whole fish, cut a few deep slashes in the sides to allow the seasonings in and to speed cooking.
  8. Rub a little of the seasoning mixture on the whole fish, inside and out, or on both fillet sides.
  9. Thread fish on skewers (use an in-and-out"basting stitch") and grill over hot coals for about five minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  10. The fish should still be moist.
  11. Serve hot with lemon wedges.
