Reviews for Grilled Spiced Fish
"Easy and delicious!! And I am not a huge fan of fish but this was excellent!"
"Delicious. Just the right amount of spice to suit my family."
"Super! i even used Tilapia with fantastic results! I will be making this alot this summer!"
"OMG, this is so good and soooo easy to make. I broiled instead of grilled and it turned out really really good. This would be over the top if grilled (instead of broiled). Will definitely be making again many times this summer, on the grill next time (s). Spicy but not too spicy at all. I might substitute smoked paprika at least for some of the paprika next time."
"Excellent! I have never made fish directly on the grill. The oil worked well on the grill - fish started to stick in just a couple spots, use a large spatula to gently loosen and then flip fillets over. I didn't have white pepper, so i just added a few grinds of black pepper, was not too spicy at all. Husband agreed that this is definitely a keeper recipe. Served with salad and a rice side dish. YUM!"
