Fabulous fish! I double-dipped in the coconut but one dip would be just fine. I actually used sweetened coconut because that was all I had and it was superb. Very eggnog-y type flavor. Served with pineapple rings baked in same oven covered in honey and sprinkled with cinnamon. PS - there's a pretty good zip (spicy heat) to the fish. People who don't enjoy a little heat in their food may want to tone done the spices. Otherwise, go for it!
