I followed the recipe exactly, using the lesser amounts of the peppers. It turned out great, but I may use 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper next time to turn up the heat a little. Also, I pan fried the fish using the full amount of butter instead of grilling. Yummy!

Use the full amount of butter or your fish will stick to the pan! This has a great flavor.
