Coconut Crusted Tilapia!
My dinner plate
We decided to serve our fish with some baked french fries. I had entirely too many vegetables the night before and it really didn’t leave my stomach feeling too good. So I wanted to keep things light and have a side dish that I know my stomach can handle, which is potatoes. I would probably serve this though with a vegetable and either a potato or rice.
This fish was light and flaky and had great flavor. I only wish that we used more coconut which is why I mentioned earlier to eyeball your measurements so that you have enough of each ingredient that you want to use. I love the flavor that coconut gives. It’s tropical tasting to me and reminds of me our honeymoon. This mixture would taste great on chicken too, I’m sure! I would totally make this again and I want to try it on chicken. I really recommend trying tilapia if you have never had it before. It’s great and it doesn’t taste fishy at all!
Do you like tilapia? What is your favorite type of fish? Are you a fan of coconut flavored foods or drinks?
