Coconut Tilapia with Apricot Dipping Sauce

“Tilapia is coated with a spicy coconut mixture and served with an apricot dipping sauce, delicious and easy! After having coconut shrimp at a famous restaurant here in Phoenix, I decided to recreate it at home using a mild white fish filet and tilapia was my first choice. Sit back and enjoy the compliments.”

Serves: Serves 4

1 cup Flaked coconut, finely chopped
2 tablespoon Flour, all purpose
1 tablespoon Creole seasoning
4 4 oz Tilapia Fillets
1/2 cup Cornstarch
1 4oz carton Egg substitute
1/2 cup Canola oil
1/2 cup Apricot jam

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Toss together the coconut, flour and Creole seasoning in a bowl. In a separate bowl, toss the tilapia with the cornstarch, and shake off the excess. Pour the egg substitute into a separate bowl, and dip the fillets in the egg. Press fillets in the coconut mixture coating all sides.
