This was excellent very tasty. Plus I didn t need a lot of ingredients so no need for a trip to the store in holiday traffic! My husband eats fish a lot for protein and he loved it! Great for athletes/bodybuilders to stir up your meal plans. Very quick to prepare. Read More

Bought some very fresh Tilapia and used the Cajun Spice Mix recipe on this site. Followed directions exactly and we devoured the lot. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing this Beth. Read More
