This recipe is actually something my husband makes on a regular basis and everyone raves about it!!! it's very good. He mostly uses halibut to make this but salmon or cod work very well also.

I should have known that "Pixie's Indian Style Halibut" wouldn't be spicy enough for my family's taste (my fault: not the recipe). I should have added some cayenne to the spice mixture as it should have been obvious to me that this had no hot spices in it (or maybe I was supposed to use Spanish paprika instead of Hungarian paprika - I didn't think of that before!). This recipe was very easy to make, and I was surprised how well the spice mixture stuck to the fish. Also, the recipe produced the perfect amount of spice for coating the fish (not too much so nothing was wasted). Thank you Pixie2 for sharing your recipe.
