    I made this for my family and they Absolutely loved it! They didn't even have to add anything else to the fish not even my biggest critic my husband. Will be doing again.

    Delicious! Just remember to adjust the amount of cayenne based on how spicy you like your food.

    Made this last night and it was a huge hit with my husband!! So quick and easy and delicious - he said it was the best fish I've ever made :) I will cut salt in half next time but this recipe is definitely going on the normal rotation! We had with zucchini fries!

    Awesome! Packs A LOT OF HEAT ❤️ didn't modify seasonings at all, baked with lime slices on top of each fillet at 400 F for 17 min then broiled for 2 min. DELICIOUS
