I baked this in my convection toaster oven to ensure a nice crisp crust, but it works great in a regular oven as well. The layers of flavour in this recipe are really delicious.

Cook:

Ingredients

1/4 c
good quality mayonnaise
1/4 c
prepared brown mustard.
1/2 c
dry bread crumbs
1/4 c
shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1/4 c
chopped mixed nuts
1 tsp
sugar
1 tsp
sea salt
1/2 tsp
cayenne pepper
1 lb
whitefish fillets

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375'F
2
Lightly grease a medium baking pan
3
In a small shallow bowl blend the mayo and mustard. In another medium bowl mix the bread crumbs, shredded coconut, chopped mixed nuts, sugar, salt and cayenne pepper. I used a combination of macadamia nuts and pecans. But be creative, I think any combo will work well.
4
Dip the fish (I used wild catfish) in the mayo/mustard mixture and coat it well. Then coat it well with the bread-crumb-coconut mixture and put in the prepared pan. I lined mine with parchment, but it's not necessary if you grease the pan.
5
Bake 20 minutes or until golden on the outside. The fish should be flaky and tender inside.
6
Enjoy!
