A costal specialty. If you like spicy, stick to the recipe, if not, cut back on the cayenne. Added to my recipe book for ZWT Prep-time does not include marinade time.

I loved the flavours in this dish, also the spiciness though it was a bit too much spice for DH. I ended up pan frying the fish as my bbq decided to quit on me. Made for ZWT7.

Yum! Loved the flavors! I actually had a piece of leftover tuna, so I marinated for awhile, then used as a dip. So good! Thanks!

Oh, wow. This marinade is unbelievable. I actually tried it on two kinds of fish, as I was cooking for picky eaters. It is equally delicious on tuna or mahi mahi. The cumin comes through very strong, which I find delightful, but someone who doesn't love cumin might want to cut the amount down a bit. Thanks for sharing!
