How to Make Coconut Lime Talapia


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Rinse and pat dry the fish. Place on the cookie sheet.
  3. Zest the lime and set a side. Salt and pepper one side of fish and drizzle half the lime juice on the fillets. Flip over and repeat. Sprinkle the zest on the top of the fillets.
  4. Brush on the cream of coconut evenly onto each fillet.
  5. Place half a tablespoon pat of butter onto each fish. (I like to cut the pats of butter up in fours to cover them on the fish more evenly).
  6. cook in the oven for 10-12min.
