Loved the recipe!! After I soak the halibut/lincod in the batter, I usually roll it in a Panko (Japanese style) bread crumbs and coconut mixture and then fry it. Delicious!!

Awesome recipe! It worked great on cod as well. Was nice and crunchy but also light and not too rich! My kids loved it as well, so that's a big plus in my books! I did like one other person said, and added a bit more salt, and it was perfect.
