Wonderful fish dinner which we enjoyed! Didn't have any cumin or garlic (used garlic powder and skipped the cumin) and I also skipped the thyme (also out of). Still enjoyed this dish though -- however next time I will make sure I have all the correct spices! Thanks for posting this keeper which we will have again soon!
