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.

Ingredients

  • 6 haddock or cod fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil

Directions

  1. In a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish, arrange fish in a single layer. Pour lime juice over fish. Let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a shallow dish, combine the flour, taco seasoning, cumin and cayenne. Remove fillets from juice and pat dry with paper towels; discard lime juice. Coat fillets with flour mixture.
  2. In a large skillet, cook fillets, in batches, over medium-high heat in oil for 6-8 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
