Baked tilapia with coconut breading

For dinner tonight, I made a recipe that can be used with just about every mild fish. I made it with tilapia this evening, but I’ve also had success with whiting and salmon.

You will need:

1 pound of mild fish (skin removed)
3/4 cup of sweetened coconut flakes
3/4 cup of plain breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine coconut flakes and breadcrumbs in a bowl.


Dip each fillet first in the beaten eggs, and next in the coconut mixture. Place on greased (I prefer to use cooking spray) baking dish or cookie sheet, and sprinkle the extra coconut mixture over the fillets. Flavor with salt and pepper to taste.


Cook for 10 to 15 minutes in a 350-degree oven. Keep in mind that cooking times will change depending on what type of fish you use.

The coconut breading will crisp up just a little bit, with the coconut adding a subtle sweetness to the fish. It’s a simple recipe, but it’s quite delicious.
