"This is a very simple recipe with a surprising amount of flavor and just the right amount of spice," according to tziehlke. "It was light and tasty. Used lemon juice rather than lemon wedges and was still delicious."

"I combined the spice ingredients in a spice shaker and used it to apply the mixture to both sides of the fish," says Heather. "We put the fish on heavy duty aluminum foil and then grilled it for 15 minutes."

"So flavorful and easy," raves Nadine DiIorio. "I added string beans to the broiler tray and the whole thing was done in six minutes."
