Coconut-Crusted Fish

I rarely cook fish at home since I'm too afraid of messing it up. Recommendations for easy fish recipes are welcome. (especially non-salmon dishes since B doesn't like salmon.) This one was easy to prepare and tasted pretty good although it didn't look very pretty. I served it with Bahia Butternut Mash. The drink in the background is a Malibu Bay Breeze. I included that drink recipe too.

Coconut-Crusted Fish

1 lb white flesh fish filets (perch, tilapia, butterfish, cod, sole)
salt and pepper
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup coconut flakes
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs

  1. Preheat oven to 350F

  2. Oil a glass pan with 1 Tbsp olive oil.

  3. Place fish in pan in a single layer. Add salt & pepper

  4. Pour 2 Tbsp lemon juice over fish filets in pan.

  5. Combine 1/3 cup coconut flakes and 3/4 cup panko and then sprinkle generously over fish.

  6. Bake 15-25 minutes until done.

Malibu Bay Breeze

1 1/2 oz Malibu rum
4 oz pineapple juice
1 1/2 oz cranberry juice
lime wedge, for garnish
freshly grated nutmeg, garnish

Build in a highball glass and garnish with the lime wedge.

Variation: Pour 1 1/2 oz Malibu rum in a mixing glass. Add 1 oz each of pineapple and cranberry juices. Shake it very hard until the pineapple juice makes nice foam on top, then strain it into a chilled martini glass. Grate fresh nutmeg on top.
