Coconut Crusted Tilapia

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!

  1. I love tilapia (especially coming from Tanzania where it is so abundant!) and I use a lot of coconut in my cooking (again very Tanzanian) so I had to try this. I added a bit of garlic and some salt to the recipe too, and it came out amazing! Thanks so much for the inspiration!
