Coconut Fried Fish with Spicy Sauce

Use dried coconut instead of breadcrumbes and you have a healthier and gluten free fish dish.  The sauce is delicious but you don’t have to serve it with the fish.

This was so well recieved by my tasters, that I made extra.  I shall be putting this on the list of regular dishes too, as it was fairly easy to make and a nice twist on “fish and chips” (I served this with a side of baked sweet potato fries).   The sauce is lovely and can be made to have on the side with other dishes, not just this fried fish.   The coconut coating is a nice change from the traditional heavy batter and helped use up my large stock of coconut too!

I used cod, but any other white fish would do.  Or perhaps prawns? I am wondering whether this could be oven baked, but will have to test that and revert.  The shallow frying seemed to give the fish a nice golden colour and keep the coconut crisp.   I use coconut flour for the dipping of the fish, but you could use almond flour (or heaven forbid, another flour…)
