I happened to use catfish with this recipe since it’s what I had on hand caught by my dad and brother. This is a super easy recipe to toss together for a weeknight meal. We added more seasoning to it to make it a little more on the spicy side, but overall I liked the citrus flavor in it as well.

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
