- Zest and juice lime into a small dish with minced garlic, coconut milk, brown sugar, soy sauce, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Whisk together. Add fish and allow to marinate for one hour.
- Place a foil or parchment-covered baking tray inside oven and preheat to 425°F. (This helps get the bread crumbs crispy.)
- Cook rice according to package directions; set aside covered, once finished.
- Beat egg in shallow bowl and add breadcrumbs to a separate dish.
- Remove fish, reserving the marinade, and dip it first into the beaten egg and then into the breadcrumbs to coat.
- Spray the top of each piece of fish with cooking spray to help it brown.
- Transfer to the hot baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until the fish is opaque.
- While the fish is baking, strain the sauce into a small skillet or saucepan and bring to a rolling boil for 2 full minutes (this will kill any bacteria left behind by the raw fish).
- After the sauce has boiled, thin it out with water and/or extra lime juice to taste.
- Meanwhile, chop mango, bell pepper, red onion, avocado, cilantro, and jalapeno (optional). Add to a mixing bowl with the lemon and lime juice; toss well. Season with salt and pepper, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Serve the fish over a bed of rice, topped with sauce and salsa.
