Ruby Barnes


4.5 oz. cod, flounder, other fish of choice
1 T finely ground coffee
1/4 t oregano
1/4 t garlic powder
1/4 t chili powder
1/2 t paprika
1/8 t ginger
1/2 t ground mustard
1/8 t salt
1/8 t pepper
2 T water

Season each side of the fish with salt and pepper.
Combine all the seasonings in a mixing bowl and mix well.
Rub a heaping spoonful of the spice rub into one side of the fish.
Cover and allow to sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Heat water in skillet.
Add the fish with the rub side down so that this side will cook first and get nice and crispy before you have to flip the fish.
Cook the fish on the rub side down for 4-5 minutes then flip and cook again for 4-5 minutes.
Cooking time may vary depending on the size of your fish. (Fish is ready to turn when it begins to lift away from the bottom of the pan)
*This could be baked in the oven on parchment lined paper for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees instead, if desired
