Posted by Picasa
Coconut Crusted Tilapia with Spicy Apricot Sauce

1 ½ C. Sweetened Flaked Coconut
2 T. Flour
2 T. Creole Seasoning
4 (4oz) Tilapia Filets
½ C. Flour
1 Large Egg + 1 T. Water
1/3 C. Vegetable Oil

The “Three Bowl Method” is great for breading fish or chicken. You will want to use three different bowls for the flour, egg wash and coconut crust topping.

First bowl - place the ½ cup of flour. Second bowl - mix the egg and water together until blended. Third bowl - add the coconut, 2 tablespoons of flour and Creole seasoning and mix together.

Take each Tilapia filet through the breading process and place on a plate until ready to cook. One filet at a time, you will want to cover with flour, dip in egg wash and press coconut topping on both sides of filet. Repeat process until all four are prepared.

In a large skillet pan, place the oil in pan and heat on medium. Place each filet into the pan and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes per side. After removing from the pan, season with salt.

Spicy Apricot Sauce:
½ C. Apricot Jam
1 T. Brown Mustard
2 t.. Horseradish

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and serve as a dipping sauce.
