All you need for this is one spice! This is how my mom cooks it for our family and everyone loves it. So simple and tasty, Even though I make it myself hers always taste better!

This was good and very easy to make. I followed the recipe except I didn't measure the old bay I just spinkled it on. My fish was thick so I cooked mine five minutes on each side and they were perfect. We all enjoyed this.
