One of the easiest healthiest and delicious ways to cook tilapia. This will be added to my rotation. Served with baked sweet potato and sautéed spinach.

This was absolutely delicious! Sautéed it with a little olive oil instead of broiling it.

Kids all raised eyebrows on this one. Loved the spice! Made it with coleslaw to cool things down. Saving this one in my file.

I liked recipe. Im recently counting my calories so it worked great for me. Only one thing I have changed. Instead of rubbing olive oil over fish I rubbed lemon juice and let it sit for a few min.

My family loved this super spicy fish. I used the leftovers for fish tacos which turned out great!

This is the fastest fish recipe I think I've ever made. The fish is on the table in 10 minutes. Even better, I tried it on my sister, who dislikes fish, and she loved it! I used a little less cumin and red pepper flakes, and rubbed it on three fillets. Awesome recipe!

This is a keeper recipe. It tasted fabulous, quick and easy to make, little mess, and healthy! Not too many recipes like that! I altered recipe by baking rather broiling. Baked at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until flaky.
