    This was great. My boyfriend is a read meat guy and he loved it enough to ask for seconds. I will definately make it again, possibly with a little less salt. - 5/11/09

    I never thought of using cumin for fish...but I'm not much of a fish cook....This is fantastic. DH and I have Talapia once a week and I'm always looking for new ways to make it. - 1/20/09
