I am loving fish right now! I was experimenting and came up with this recipe of Coconut Crusted Tilapia. I have to admit… this might not have made it to my plate. I just kept picking at it while I was preparing the side dishes that when it came time to eat it… mine was gone. My mouth is watering like crazy just thinking about it!
Coconut Crusted Tilapia
6 Pieces of Tilapia, thawed
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup Whole Wheat Ritz Crackers, crushed
1/3 cup egg whites
olive oil spray
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Place foil on a cookie sheet and spray with non stick spray.
Combine coconut flakes, Italian crumbs, and crackers in a bowl. Put egg whites in another bowl.
Dip the Tilapia in the egg, then in the coconut crumb mixture. Then place them on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until Tilapia is done. (Check Tilapia at about 15 minutes and watch it so it won’t burn)
