  1. Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Mix unsweetened coconut, coconut flour, and salt together on a plate.
  3. Brush egg over each tilapia fillet. Press each fillet into coconut mixture until evenly coated. Gently toss between your hands so any coconut that hasn't stuck can fall away. Place the coated fillets onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.
  4. Fry fillets in the hot oil until golden brown and fish flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

I really enjoyed this recipe. It was easy and simple. I noticed some said it was plain and others used flour instead of coconut flour. Well, it's a paleo recipe so it's designed to be made wit...

Came out great and was super easy to prepare!

Simple and delicious! New favorite paleo dish!

Please look at my recipes on the site, your opinion is important to me , thank you

Did this with both chicken and tilapia. Added a dash of cayenne to the chicken strips. We love it!

A quick, simple dish for everyday. I used white bass fillets, and I added about a teaspoon of cajun seasoning to this (per another review) to liven it up. Next time I'll use a larger coconut shr...

I loved it! Only thing is I only used 1/2 the amount of the recommended ingredients to coat it. I used the left over on salmon and though that tasted ok it was far better on the tilapia.
