  1. Combine the 1-1/2 teaspoons cumin, the garlic powder, dried oregano, ground ginger, smoked paprika, salt and black and red peppers in small bowl. Stir in olive oil to make a saucy paste; divide mixture in half and set aside one portion.
  2. Brush half of the paste on fish fillets; set aside. Lightly spray grill or grill pan with PAM. Heat to high heat; when hot, add fish and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, turning once.
  3. Meanwhile, combine drained tomatoes, mango, jalapeno, red onion, cilantro, the 1 teaspoon cumin, the garlic and lime juice in medium bowl; set aside.
  4. Remove fish from grill once it flakes easily with a fork. Brush remaining paste on cooked fish. Serve with Mango Salsa.

I did not make the salsa, just the blackening spices. Very good, with just the right amount of heat for me.
