this is delicious! a tasty and easy fish recipe. i didn't have chipotle chili spice so i used chili powder. i also eliminated the salt and it wasn't missed. i'll make this again.

Very simple, fast and delicious! My picky fiance even helped himself to seconds. I didn't have any Chipotle seasoning around, so I substituted chili powder instead. I also added a little more...

I had never made fish before this recipe, and it turned out DELISH! We invited the in-laws over and everyone was impressed.

My husband doesn't normally like fish because it can be bland. But he loved tilapia with this rub. Plus it was so quick to make!

I'm sorry no one in our family liked it. it was like a layer of stuff over bland fish. None of the flavors even went into the fish at all.
