1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 cup chopped fresh strawberries

2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro

1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Finely shred lime peel. Peel, section, and chop lime; set aside. In a small bowl combine lime peel, the 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the cayenne pepper. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of each fish steak; rub in with your fingers.
