  • In a small bowl, stir together coriander seeds, brown sugar, and lemon-pepper seasoning. Sprinkle fish evenly with coriander seeds mixture; use your fingers to press in slightly. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, stir together cooked rice, mango, the snipped cilantro, and the lemon peel. Serve fish on top of rice mixture. If desired, garnish with lemon wedges and/or cilantro sprigs.
