I was looking for a quick and easy recipe and stumbled across this. I only had cod, but it worked perfectly. I followed the recipe (almost) exactly. It was spicy and delicious. Highly recommended.

This recipe just didn't quite do it for us, although it certainly was easy. I cooked a batch of rice and while that was simmering, I mixed the spices with the syrup. While the fish was cooking, I tossed a spring greens salad with balsamic vinaigrette, which was an excellent complement to the rice and the heat of the fish. Bust the fish wasn't the star it should have been. It was my fist time cooking Mahi Mahi and it seemed a bit bland, despite the Cajun spice. I will give it another try with different fish and see how that works for us. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

This was very yummy and fast. I was worried the maple syrup was going to make it too sweet, but it was well balanced with the Cajun seasoning.

This was definitely spicy for our taste but it was approved to try again so this recipe gets a solid 4 stars. I could see the paste complementing any firm fish such as salmon and I think it would also be good on shrimp. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

This syrup mixture is sweet and spicy and delicious! I brushed it over salmon and baked it in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes.

This is going to be one of my favorite recipes! I loved this and it was so easy to make......not to mention fast which is a must when you have a baby! We have made this twice with two different cajun seasonings....just remember not all brands of cajun seasoning are created equal! We love "Slap Ya Mama" form Louisiana, but also use Zataran's which isn't as spicy. Thank you Janel! This recipe is great!

I am making this for the second time since Christmas. The flavors definitely draw you back and it is easy to prepare and company worthy. I used the "lite" version of Tony Chachere's as my creole seasoning. It is lite on salt - not on heat! I am making a double batch of the sauce this time so I'll have some extra for rice. I will not double the creole seasoning, however. I like things spicy but it was a kicked up a little high for me. If you are making it for the first time I would advise starting with half of the tablespoon-- you can always add more! This recipe does not disappoint. Thanks for sharing Janell.

This was a hit in my home even with my 11 year old fish-hating son. I did not have Cajun seasoning so I used Southwest seasoning blend by Pampered Chef. Tasted terrific.
