  1. If you don't like tuna you can substitute with salmon, herring, mackerel or lake trout.

  2. Hey Will - this was tasty! I made the spice mixture like you suggested and kind of seared the fish in a pan on the stove. Over cooked it just a tad. But I also served it with a mango-pineapple salsa that I made - it compliments the spice just right! Keep up the recipes, I'll keep trying them!
