  • 4.5 oz cod, flounder, other fish of choice
  • 1 tbsp finely ground coffee
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp 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
