Ingredients

  • 4 thin, white fish filets (like tilapia, cod or mahi)
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil divided

Instructions

  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Pour bread crumbs in to a shallow dish.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to the pan and swirl to coat (or spray with oil to cover surface).
  • Pat dry fish fillets. Then evenly spread mustard on both sides of each fillet. (A marinade brush works really well for this.
  • Place each filet in the bread crumbs one at a time, pressing in the crumbs to stick on both sides.
  • Place fish in skillet and cook for 2-4 minutes per side. Very thin fish only need 2 minutes per side. Thicker fish, like mahi, will need 3-4 minutes per side.
  • Add the additional tablespoon of oil (or continue to spray the pan) when needed and finish cooking all filets.
  • Serve immediately.
