Place fish fillets in a shallow glass or plastic dish. Mix milk with
cumin and pour over the fish. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
Cook and stir onion in oil in a 2-quart saucepan until tender. Stir

fish and pat dry. Place 1 fish on each of eight 12-inch squares of
heavy duty aluminum foil. Spoon some of the onion mixture onto the
fish. Fold foil over the fish and seal security. Place foil packets
on an ungreased jelly roll pan, 15 1/2 X 10 1/2 X 1-inch. Bake until
fish fish flakes easily with fork, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve with lemon
or lime wedges.
