Another one of my magazine clippings that is disintegrating. A wonderful spicy fish that tastes wonderful with steamed basmati or jasmine rice and a green vegetable. This is a easy microwave fish dinner. Cook time is marinating and cooking time combined.

- 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric

I'm not much of a fish fan but this quick and easy recipe made for a wonderfully relaxing meal. Have to be careful when cooking the fish in the microwave as mine almost overcooked it/dried it out.
