"This is a great recipe if you love coconut. Everyone loved it and I did use the peanut oil. The hubby and kids both said it was a keeper. So, I will be making this one again."

"Awesome recipe! I put the coconut in a blender to finely chop it. Didn't have Mango so used pineapple and added a Habanero pepper for a little spice. The fish was so good, little sweet but you could still taste the fish through the crust. We used Walleye as it is freshly caught in this area, more of a delicate fish then the Mahi Mahi but the flavors still worked great."
