Easy Coconut-Crusted Fish

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes
Makes: 4


  1. 4 fish fillets, such as halibut or salmon (approx. 5 oz/150 g each)
  2. 3 tbsp (45 mL) hoisin sauce
  3. 1/3 cup (75 mL) unsweetened coconut flakes
  4. 4 lime wedges


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C). Place fish in a single layer on lightly greased foil-lined baking dish. Spread the hoisin sauce on top of the fish. Sprinkle with the coconut. Bake 10 min., then turn oven to broil. Broil the fish 1 to 2 min., or until coconut is lightly golden (do not allow hoisin to scorch) and the fish is cooked through. Plate and serve with lime wedges for squeezing over top.

Tip: Coat fish with an equal amount of sliced almonds or approx. 3 tbsp (45 mL) sesame seeds instead of coconut. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts can be prepared in the same manner. If using chicken, increase the baking time by about 5 min.
