My super speedy take on a classic Bengali comfort dish.  Its exam time and I need food that reminds me home and my mom’s cooking.  Here it goes, pay close attention because it is so easy you might just miss it !!!!

Pat dry 1lb of fresh tilapia. Season the fish with salt.

 

In a small bowl, whisk together 1tsp turmeric, 1tsp of cayenne pepper, 1tbsp of lime juice and 1/2 tbsp of olive oil.

Pour the marinade over the fish and let it sit for 10 mins–while you preheat the broiler to 450F

Sprinkle black cumin seeds and paprika over each fillet and broil till cooked through-about 10mins.
