Coconut Fish Sticks with Spicy Garlic Aioli

Here in Jersey it’s the season for fresh fish!  It doesn’t get much fresher than when your dad delivers you fish that was caught that morning!  I used fluke for this recipe, but any white fish would work.  Flounder is easily accessible and pretty much the same thing.  Give it a try!
