Preheat grill to high heat. Coat a grill rack with cooking spray. Combine spices and herbs in a small bowl; mix well. Sprinkle spices evenly over fish and pat on with clean hands, covering fillets completely. Place fish on preheated grill 4–5 inches from fire or coals. Cook 4–5 minutes per half-inch thickness (measured at thickest point), or until fish flakes when pierced with a fork; turn once halfway through cooking. Squeeze a lemon wedge over each serving.
