What You'll Need

  • Measuring spoons
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Mixing Spoon
  • Baking pan
  • Aluminum foil
  • Butter knife

Directions

  1. Turn the broiler on to high.
  2. Mix the spices together in a small bowl. Sprinkle them over both sides of the fish and massage gently with your fingers to cover thoroughly in the spices.
  3. Lay the spiced fillets on a baking pan lined with aluminum foil.
  4. Broil for 4 to 7 minutes. They will cook very quickly, so after 4 minutes, check to see if they are done by gently inserting a butter knife into the thickest part of the fillet. If it goes through easily and the fish flakes apart, you’re done. If the knife meets resistance and the fish stays together, put the fillets back under the broiler for another few minutes. Once you’ve done this once or twice, you’ll be able to tell when your fish is done at a glance.
  5. When the fish is cooked, squeeze a lime overtop. Serve with rice or a favorite vegetable side dish, like Spicy Green Beans.
