Macadamia and Coconut Tilapia

Last week we were at Costco buying some of our usual staples - Kirkland Brand House Blend coffee beans, Artichoke & Jalapeno Dip, and Kirkland Marcona Almonds.  Except that they ran out of Marcona almonds.  They did however have Mac Farms Macadamia Nuts, so we grabbed a bag of those instead.  Since last week's tortilla crusted tilapia fillets using this You Tube video worked out so well, we decided to try macadamia and coconut encrusted tilapia using the same technique.  Genius.  Take a look.
From the photo above, it looks like I used about 25 macadamia nuts and about 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes to coat six tilapia fillets.  Add salt & pepper or your seasoning of choice.
 Place fillets on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.

 Next time, I will slightly toast the coconut flakes before coating the fish.  The toasty coconut flakes really add wonderful texture and light flavor.  The only thing we added to our fish was a bed of fresh grated cabbage and our favorite fish taco sauce recipe from All Recipes member BREESE823.
Next week I'll post some older recipes and more progress updates.  Salud.
