"I have made this recipe twice with talapia! The first time, I pan fried it in olive oil/butter! It was the best but, of course, not the healthiest! Oven baking created a very yummy version too. Even the pickiest eater will enjoy! I used non-sweetened coconut and topped it with a fresh peach-mango salsa:-)"


4 4-oz Salmon fillets; (or other firm fish) skin removed
1 tablespoon Lime juice
1/2 cup Panko; Japanese bread crumbs
1/4 cup Sweetened coconut; flaked

Made this with tilapia and served with lemon-dill green beans. It was quite good, though didn't have any hint of sweetness that I was expecting from the coconut.
