Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat. Combine sugar and cumin; sprinkle 2 Tbsp. sugar mixture over fish. Place fish in skillet, sugar side down; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture.
  • Cook 3 to 5 min. on each side or until fish flakes easily with fork. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
  • Add lime and orange juices to skillet. Cook on medium heat until heated through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in cilantro and mint. Spoon evenly over fish.

Special Extra

For an extra kick, add 1 tsp. crushed red pepper to the coating ingredients before using to coat the fish.

Cooking Know-How

Fish is done when it looks opaque and just begins to flake easily with a fork. Undercooked fish looks translucent and overcooked fish looks dry and falls apart.

How to Chop the Mint and Cilantro

Stack the mint and cilantro leaves on top of each other. Roll the stack lengthwise, then cut crosswise into thin slices. This is a technique professional chefs call chiffonade.

    This had a strange flavor

    This was VERY yummy! I loved the change in flavor using orange juice instead of the usual lemon flavor. I did use a can of concentrate orange juice as it was quicker than squeezing. My finicky 16 yr old boy even ate it and had seconds! That says it all

    Decided to make this recipe with a backup plan..just in case my family didn't like it. We finished all the Island Citrus Fish and wished we had more! I used Haddock, because I had it in the freezer, and I added 3/4tsp. crushed red pepper which gave it a nice zip. It was fantastic! Light, sweet with a little spicy flavor. Will definitely make it again! Already shared the recipe!
