Day 123: Nauru and coconut crusted fish

Good evening, Raffies!

Today was such as great day: it was finally warm enough for me to say that I am not cold. And we are having fish for dinner!

We are going to Nauru and enjoying a very simple dish: coconut crusted fish with white rice.
Fun fact, Nauru is the smallest country in the world! Most of its food has to be imported, which leaves the country with little more than fish and coconut as a staple food.

All you need is:

4 fillers tilapia (or any other white fish)
1/2 c shredded coconut
1/2 c breadcrumbs
1 egg
1 lime
oil to fry

Start by placing the coconut and the breadcrumbs into a bowl or plate and mixing them. Crack the egg into another plate and stir it. Salt and pepper the egg.
Salt and pepper the fish, pass it through the egg and the coconut mix. Then fry it in oil in a pan. After 2 minutes, flip it over and fry for another 2 minutes. When it is golden brown, you are good to go.
Sprinkle with lime juice and serve either alone or with rice.

The coconut breading was amazing! The fish was crunchy and juicy and the lime enhanced the flavour.

Love, Raffi
