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!
1 pound fish filets
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup coconut oil
Spicy Garlic Aioli – whisk together 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1 clove minced garlic, and 1/4 tsp. Cajun seasoning
1. Cut fish into fish sticks. Beat eggs in a small bowl. Mix salt and coconut and place on a plate. Coat each stick with egg then coat with coconut mixture.
2. Heat coconut oil over medium high heat. Fry the fish in small batches until golden brown on both sides (about 4 minutes per side).
3. Absorb excess oil with paper towels and serve with apicy garlic aioli.
