Chili Rubbed Fish

Standard

This is a simple recipe. All you do is sprinkle the seasonings and broil it! I usually use this rub on salmon, but I also use it on white fish like Mahi Mahi pictured here.

Ingredients:

  • chili powder
  • paprika
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • Olive Oil spray for finish

Directions:

Preheat broiler on low. Set rack in middle of oven. If you have a second rack, I use this to roast asparagus while the fish cooks under the broiler. Why asparagus? Because its fast to bake and I like a little crunch on mine.

 

Eyeball all the seasonings. I first lightly salt the fish.
