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


  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!
