Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly coat the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Drizzle lime juice over one side of each tilapia fillet; place the fillets with the juiced-side down into the prepared baking dish. Spread a thin layer of yogurt atop each fillet.
  3. Mix pecans and coconut in a bowl. Divide equally between the tilapia fillets and lightly press mixture into the yogurt layer.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 15 minutes.

Delicious and super easy--my favorite kind of dish! I used unsweetened coconut; otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. This has become my go-to recipe for when I'm in a hurry--I just keep a container of the chopped pecans and coconut on hand and throw it together with a simple salad for a delicious, gourmet-tasting meal.

Very easy and very tasty...much like prepared pecan-encrusted tilapia we had enjoyed earlier. We had some trouble getting the coconut to brown but will run it under the broiler for a minute or two if that happens again. We also used unsweetened coconut.

I actually really liked it. I was definitely skeptical at first, but I'm glad I tried it. I used unsweetened coconut and lemon instead of lime. Also, I added some red pepper flakes at the end for a little kick, which was good. The fish could definitely use some salting before you add the yogurt and such. And I made my own honey yogurt out of raw honey and low fat Greek yogurt. There isn't any breading, which I like too. Great, great recipe. My kids also loved it. Will definitely make again and again.

I've been making this dinner for my family once a week! It is one of our new favorite dishes. I don't substitute anything, just use the recipe as is and it is deliciously amazing! So happy I found this delightful dish and thank you to the creater for sharing!

I love coconut, yogurt, and pecans but the flavor of the fish was a little bland once you got through the good stuff. Maybe something simple like a little sea salt would do the trick, other wise though it was a great dish.
