Top Review by love4culinary

This was VERY easy, and very good. I only made one slight change. Instead of just rubbing the dry spices on to the fish, I decided to make a rub by adding some olive oil to the spices before rubbing it into the fish. It was spectacular! I cut down on the cayenne, as It would have made it a bit too spicy for my family. It was thoroughly enjoyed, and will be made again. Thanks for posting this easy and yummy recipe! :-)
