We got our recipe from Better Homes & Gardens Special Edition Pink Plaid: For Breast Cancer Awareness {i highly recommend!} but i found a similar one here at bhg online. {the recipe written out below is how we made it.}

1 lb fresh or frozen skinless fish fillets {we used cod}
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Cut fish crosswise into 3/4-inch slices. Place fish in a single layer in a greased shallow baking pan. Combine butter, cumin, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Brush over fish. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 4 to 6 minutes or until fish begins to flake when tested with a fork.

In addition to the fish, we:

diced up some fresh mango
made some slaw {i just used cabbage, mayo, pickle juice, salt & pepper - sorry, didn't measure anything out}
smashed some avocado
sliced some lime for juice as a final topping

we added a little salt to each one, and i thought they were heaven in my mouth!
