Cayenne pepper, taco seasoning and cumin give this fried fish a colorful coating and fantastic southwestern flavor. The slightly crispy fillets are accented by a splash of lime. Prepare the recipe with haddock, cod or any firm fish you prefer.

"I sometimes will substitute lemon juice for the lime juice.. and have done this with cod, tilapia or flounder. Any white fish will due well in this recipe... always a great meal."

"The fish was very flavorful, loved the zip from the lime juice! The only thing I'm going to change is to add some salt next time. Hubby loved it!"
