Coconut Fish Fillets

READY IN: 30mins

This is a fabulous way to serve fish! Crunchy coconut mixed with cereal crumbs make for a delicious texture to an otherwise blah fish dinner! It's great on sole, perch, or just any fillet! It's great with some cole slaw and a slice of sourdough bread. Lots of flavors!

It would've gotten 5 stars had there been a measurement on how much coconut to use. I fudged in a 1/3 cup. It was really delicious and a real hit with my guests.
