Pan-Fried Cumin-Chile Crusted Fish

Pan-Fried Cumin-Chile Crusted Fish created by Tinkerbell

This only serves 2 but can easily be increased to serve how many servings you need. Although the original recipe suggests using snapper, other white fish such as Tilapia or Grouper can be used. When I made this I used Tilapia, as it is more readily available where I live. As there is not much oil used to cook the fish, it best to use a bit of Pam in the skillet or a non-stick pan, as the fish tends to stick. Recipe source: local newspaper

    I tried it and thought it was fantastic! I agree with one reviewer, if you like more spice - kick it up a notch by reducing the cumin and adding more chili powder. We liked it just the way it was. Tasty but mild. I served it with buttermilk mashed potatoes! Delish! I definitely will make this again but with a tad more kick to it. Thanks for sharing!

    Good - I used tilapia. I do not like my fish to be very fishy. First bite was a little too fishy for me, but it was great after that.

    I used tilapia and this coating was nice and crispy, yet still very light. Our only change next time will be to reduce the cumin slightly and make up for that with more chili powder. We'd just like a bit more spice. I loved how the coating stayed on the fish and that even with two strong flavors, it didn't overpower the fish itself. Served it with a squeeze of lime, rice and some veggies. Thanks for posting, Ellie! We'll be making this again soon. Made & enjoyed for Topic of the Month forum's Seafood Tag Game. :)

    Good flavor!! Even my husband liked it, and he's a standard garlic salt seasoning person.
