Coconut Snapper with Lime Cilantro Butter Recipe

Serves/Makes: 2 servings

Ingredients:

  •     For Seared Snapper:
  • 2 any snapper fillets (I used queen snapper), about 6-8 ounces each
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro for garnish
  • 2-3 tablespoons toasted shaved coconut for garnish
  • For Lime Cilantro Butter Butter:
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoons chopped cilantro
How to cook Coconut Snapper with Lime Cilantro Butter:
  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Rinse the fish fillets under running cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Set up 3 dishes for dredging (1 for seasoned flour, 1 for beaten egg, 1 for Panko and coconut).
  • Heat an oven safe, non-stick pan on medium-high; add butter and olive oil.
  • Dredge fish in flour, then egg, then Panko-coconut mixture.
  • Place fish in hot pan; cook about 1 minute, then check bottom to ensure brownness. When brown, flip each fillet and allow to cook about 1 more minute (until browned).
  • Place pan in oven; allow to cook another 1-2 minutes (don't overcook or the fish will be dry!).
  • While in the oven, prepare the Lime Cilantro topping by melting butter in a small sauce pan, then mixing in lime zest and cilantro. Remove from heat.
  • Remove fish from oven and transfer to plates over a boiled or steamed rice.
  • Spoon butter mixture over fish, then top with cilantro and toasted coconut.
  •     Enjoy!

Comment(s):

Queen Snapper’s flesh is mild, delicate, white and flaky - everything Snapper should be.

So, armed with two beautiful fillets, I decided to prepare it in a crunchy coating of coconut and Panko, then zing it up a bit with the lime and cilantro I had in the fridge.

The coconut adds a light sweetness, which is offset by the tanginess of the lime and the freshness of the cilantro. This is a simple recipe in which you can use just about any white, flaky fish.
