Coconut Fish

TOTAL TIME: no time at all, really (15 minutes)

SERVING SIZE: 2 adults and 2 kids (especially if one doesn't eat fish)



Ingredients

1 lb. skinned fish filets (BD used sole)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into bits
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup panko (we've had some questions about panko here at Mama Cooks - these are especially light and crunchy Japanese bread crumbs, but any bread crumbs will do)
cup dry, unsweetened coconut flakes
lime slices for garnish



Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Oil a glass pan (we used a 9 x 13"). Place the fish filets in the pan in a single layer; salt and pepper them.

Mix the bread crumbs and coconut together, then sprinkle this generously over the fish. Drizzle it all with lemon juice and butter. Bake for 5-7 minutes, then jazz it up under the broiler until brown, about two more minutes.

Garnish with lime. Raise a fork to Violet. (See Requiem for a Fish for more about poor Violet.)
