Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 6 mahi mahi fillets (5 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut or canola oil
  • 2 medium mangoes, peeled and cubed

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, halved
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Place flour and eggs in separate shallow bowls. In another shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and coconut. Dip fillets in flour, eggs, then bread crumb mixture.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook fish in oil for 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown on the outside and fish just turns opaque in the center.
  3. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine the mangoes, wine, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and pepper; cover and process until blended. Stir in basil. Serve with fish.
