There’s nothing like a good bass recipe. With fresh bass on the menu, the size of the fish isn’t important. Many of us can recall, as youngsters, catching and sinking our teeth into bass caught at the local pond. It’s still some of the best eating fish out there.

1
Cut cleaned bass fillets to nugget-sized pieces. Prepare three shallow dishes for the three-step process. In the first dish place sugar, salt, seasonings and flour. In the second dish, beat the eggs with the tablespoon of water. In the third dish mix bread crumbs and coconut.

In a large skillet, heat 1/4-inch of coconut oil on medium-high heat. One at a time, coat fish pieces with flour, dip into egg mixture, press into bread crumb mixture to completely coat, then add the coated fish to the hot oil. Fry 1 to 3 minutes per side, adjusting heat and adding more coconut oil as needed. Serve with a slice of lemon and a favorite dipping sauce.
