Most people are not fond of cooking fish because they do not know how to prepare it. Fish especially in fillets are easy to cook. You can fry, steam or broil it. Just add herbs and season it with salt and pepper. It will probably take around 15-20 minutes to prepare a good dish made of fish.
Salmon is a commonly used type of fish when cooking. Â It is a little oilier than other types of fish, which is why it is suitable for baking. It remains juicy because it does not dry easily. Coconut flakes are a perfect compliment. The oils from the salmon and coconut combined give off a rich but light flavor, resulting in a succulent dish.
4 (4 ounce) salmon fillets, skin removed
2 teaspoons olive oil or cooking spray
1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
1/4 cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs) or dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup almonds, sliced or crushed
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400F (200C) degrees.
Marinate the salmon in lemon juice and set aside, let the fish absorb the flavor.
In a shallow dish or bowl, combine the bread crumbs, coconut and almonds. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
Grease the baking pan with olive oil or cooking spray. Coat the fish with bread crumbs mixture and place them on the baking pan. Top the fish with the leftover bread crumbs mixture.
Bake it for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness (10 minutes for every inch) or until the crust is golden brown.
Serve warm with vegetables.
