Instructions

Coconut Almond Crusted Cod

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.
  2. When the skillet is hot spray with cooking spray or coat the pan with a couple teaspoons of oil.
  3. In a shallow dish whisk together the almond meal, coconut, salt, garlic powder, black pepper, and cayenne.
  4. Pour the coconut milk into a separate shallow dish.
  5. Place the cod fillets in the coconut milk and let them soak in it for a couple minutes, turning them over once.
  6. Individually remove the fillets from the milk and place them in the coconut almond mixture, coating them on all sides.
  7. Shake off any excess coating then place them in the hot oiled skillet.
  8. Cook the fillets for approximately 4-5 minutes on the first side, then flip them over and cook for another 1-2 minutes depending on the thickness and desired degree of doneness.
  9. The cod should be opaque and flakey.
  10. Remove from the heat and serve with the pineapple peach salsa.
