This is a simple recipe for chili rubbed fish. 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.
- chili powder
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- Olive Oil spray for finish
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.
Place fish on top rack. Broil for about 4-5 min, then switch broiler to high. Broil until fish is done, maybe another 4 minutes, depending on the fish. You can start with broiler on high if you have thinner fish filets. You will get the crunchy rub without overcooking your fish.
