  • 3 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3/4 cup flour, all-purpose
  • 1 1/4 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  • 1 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 12 ounce white fish fillet
  • 4 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium mango
  • 1/2 medium onion, red
  • 1/4 cup cilantro
  • 3 medium lime

Serve With

  • 8 medium carrot
  • 2 teaspoon mustard, ground
  • 3 tablespoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 medium rolls, dinner, wheat


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Wash and peel carrots; cut into sticks then place onto a baking sheet.
  • Whisk together ground mustard, honey and salt. Drizzle half the mixture evenly over the carrots. Bake for 15-20 minutes until tender; remove from oven and drizzle with remaining honey-mustard. Cover with foil until ready to serve.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and water; set aside. Place the flour in a shallow dish, large enough to spread out for dredging. Mix the Panko, coconut and paprika in a separate shallow dish (pie plates work great).
  • Dip each fish filet into the egg wash, then the flour, and finally into the coconut mixture, making sure to coat both sides. Set onto plate.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. This will ensure hot oil and a nice crispy coating on the fish.
  • Place each fillet into the hot oil, being sure to not over-crowd the fish.  If needed, cook only 1-2 pieces at a time, adding more oil if needed.
  • While the fish cooks, dice mango and onion; toss together with chopped cilantro and the juice of one lime. Set aside.
  • Serve fish topped with mango salsa; spritz with extra lime juice as desired. Serve carrots and rolls on the side.
