A first time for everything.

The first time I made this recipe, I was a little trepidatious of feeding this to my kids for dinner. It was the first time I’d ever breaded fish, let alone just used coconut to “bread” something.

But I was pleasantly surprised by the general love of this meal and the sorrow that there wasn’t more after its quick disappearance.

Salmon, or tilapia?

If you’ve been around this blog for a loooong time (like I have – ha!) you might remember a little ol’ recipe I posted way back when. It was called crispy coconut fried tilapia. And it was delicious.

But since then I’ve pretty much stopped eating tilapia. Not because I’m up on all the hype that it’s as awful as garbage, but because I can’t find any of good quality. Salmon on the other hand can be found wild caught and frozen at my local wonderful Aldi.

 And I just happen to love salmon waaaaay more than tilapia anyway.

This recipe is super-d-duper simple, yo. And if you could all the variants of coconut in the recipe as one ingredient, then the recipe only really has 2 ingredients, also! Coconut oil, coconut flour, shredded coconut… it’s all coconut, right? So bread up your salmon with all those coconut parts, pan-fry, and squeeze a little fresh lemon juice on top.

It’s sooo yummy.

Ingredients

Instructions

Heat the coconut oil in skillet over medium-low heat (I use my cast iron skillet).

Set out two shallow dishes or bowls, one with coconut milk, and one with the flour, coconut, salt, and pepper.

Dip the fish in the coconut milk then coat with coconut mixture.

Fry until golden-browned and flakey. (About 2-3 minutes per side, depending on how thick your fillets are.)

Serve with a squeeze of lemon.
