Mix the spices together in a small bowl and set aside.

Dip each piece of fish into the melted butter and sprinkle both sides with the spice mixture. Gently pat the spices onto the fish.
Place the fillets into a very hot pan and drizzle each piece with a little butter. Cook for approximately three minutes, or until the fish has a charred appearance.
Turn the fish over and drizzle with butter again. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with potato wedges and fresh lemon.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
