Super Simple Fish Recipe

This is one of my favorite fish recipes.  It has only six ingredients and cooks up quick.  We eat it as an entree or flake it and use it in fish tacos.    I use cod, but it would probably work with other whitefish too.




2 pounds of cod

1 Tablespoon of chili powder

2 teaspoons brown sugar

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

Olive Oil for cooking





  1. Rinse the fish and pat dry – set aside
  2. In a medium size bowl mix the chili powder, brown sugar and the salt and pepper
  3. Rub the mixture into the fish – on all sides
  4. Heat the oil in a large skillet.
  5. Saute the fish until it flakes easily – this doesn’t take long so keep an eye on it.

    Sounds delicious.
    I mostly use our George Foreman grill to cook our fish, chicken & meat. This would probably work on there, too.
    I usually liberally sprinkle the fish (or chicken or meat) with a salt-free spice mixture (like one of the Mrs Dash flavors).
