First, I added a ton of garlic, cumin & paprika. Second, I grilled the fish with the paprika--skipped the lemon. My daughter said the talapia did not taste fishy and gave it 4 stars; my husband went for 3 stars, however, he went back for more. I am going with 3 stars because I changed up the recipe a bit. Was very easy to make.
