Seared Fish With Cumin and Lemon (Mark Bittman)

Total Time

Another yummy sounding, quick recipe from Mark Bittman which doesn't give exact amounts. I haven't tried this so am guessing that this is for about a pound of fish (Mark doesn't specify if they are steaks or filets). Salmon or any other sturdy fish works here. Prep and cooking times are estimates.
