Macadamia & Coconut Crusted Tilapia with ‘Mexican Pesto’

by Tina
This, my friends, was a WINNER. I was unsure as to how it would turn out since it was really just a concept in my head that I had never actually made. I had some Macadamia nuts in the pantry and some shredded coconut in th freezer and I thought, “hey I bet I can just grind it all... #fish #meatless

You probably guessed this already but the best part of all this is that the Parmesan gets a little crispy-crunch to it because it broils so beautifully. Pair that with the delicately flaky white fish and the fresh tang of the tomatoes, and then the thick and smooth basil sauciness of the pesto… ohhhyeah. I have a thing for texture. And cheese.

Sometimes I like to try complicated recipes, but, folks, this butcher gets busy and when I do I want my dinner quick and easy. That’s why I keep a couple 5 ingredient recipes handy, like this cheesy pesto tilapia. Throw a fillet or two over some angel hair pasta and KAPOW! dinner is served. -- Kevin the Meatbay Butcher
