2 large eggs
1/2 cup coconut, unsweetened and finely shredded
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, crushed
4 (6-ounce) tilapia filets
2 tablespoons canola oil


Step 1

In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs.

Step 2

Run the coconut and the pecans through a food processor until very crumbly.

Step 3

In a separate shallow bowl, combine the coconut, pecans, salt, and red pepper flakes.

Step 4

Dip the 4 tilapia fillets into the eggs, then into the coconut mixture, patting to help the coating adhere.

Step 5

In a large skillet, heat the canola oil over medium heat.

Step 6

In batches, add the coated tilapia and cook until it is lightly browned and just begins to flake easily with a fork, about 2-3 minutes on each side.

Step 7

Plate and serve.
