Questions & Replies

  1. Do you add the cumin and lime juice to the fish or the butter?


  1. This was the best recipe I have ever made for my cod. I get the protein I need and the good taste for my mouth. This was a perfect meal for my wife and I we both loved it but made some small changes to it.
  2. highly recommend! made with sweet potatoes and asparagus (sweet potatoe is a great compliment to the fire of the spices on the fish) I made it with sole and the whole meal took about 15 minutes!
  3. This recipe was so wonderful! The lime juice cuts the chili powder in the tastiest way. I didn't add the butter as others suggested and just squeezed the lime juice over the top at the end. I will say that I had larger cod filets so I ended up baking them for 3 additional minutes.
  4. I used scallops that I had on hand for this recipe, because I was too lazy to go to the store and get cod. I simply seared them in a heated skillet with olive oil after sprinkling the spices on them. Right before serving, I squeezed the juice from a lime over them. Fantastic! I will keep this recipe around and use on other fish as well.
  5. I didn't rate this because I used tilapia instead of cod, because that's what I had on hand. It was awesomeness! Thanks.


  1. We changed the order of how to cumin and chili powder was put in the thing and it turned out great!


I love checking out all the different ethnic grocers in the area, Shalimar in Cambridge, Super 88 in Brighton and Chinatown, and Americas Food Basket a Latino supermarket with every possible herb or vegetable called for in spanish recipes.
