Coconutty Baked Fish

Jo Zimny


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.

How to Make Coconutty Baked Fish


  • 1Preheat oven to 375'F
  • 2Lightly grease a medium baking pan
  • 3In 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.
  • 4Dip 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.
  • 5Bake 20 minutes or until golden on the outside. The fish should be flaky and tender inside.
  • 6Enjoy!
