Everyone who knows me knows I despise fish. Ever since I was a kid, I couldn’t stand the fishy smell or the texture. I just started eating some seafood such as shrimp and calamari so I figured I would give fish another try. I can’t say it was my favorite meal (simply because I am not a fan of fish) but it did bring out some flavor that I didn’t know existed in fish!
My goal in making fish was to “hide” the fishy taste. I absolutely love coconut on everything so I decided coconut would be my main flavor. I ended up with a nice, crunchy coconut/Panko breading that came out pretty good. This is also very low-fat!
You will need:
- 2 4 oz Tilapia
- 1/2 cup Panko (Japanese style bread crumbs)
- 1/4 cup Coconut Flakes
- 1 egg
- Dash of milk
- fresh lemon wedge
Directions: Beat 1 egg and dash of milk together. Combine coconut and breadcrumbs together in separate bowl.
Roll tilapia in milk/egg mix and coat thoroughly with Panko and coconut mix. Squeeze fresh lemon for additional flavor. Serves 2.
