  1. Mix coconut crunch, crushed nuts and lemon pepper and place over fish to form a nice even layer (about 4mm thick)
  2. Bake in pre-heated oven at 180 deg C for 15-20 mins on the bottom shelf. If the crust starts to colour, place foil over fish and continue baking.
  3. Place Chips on tray and season well with salt and pepper and bake in oven at the same time as the fish on the top shelf
  4. Clean and prepare green vegetables for stir frying
  5. Combine all Remoulade ingredients and season if necessary
  6. When a skewer goes through the fish with no resistance, it is ready. Turn oven down to low, 100 deg C and heat oil in a pan. Stir fry all the green vegetables together, adding a little bit of water and cover with a lid to steam the vegetables through.
  7. Serve all green vegetables, chips then fish on top
  8. Garnish with Remoulade and lemon wedge

  1. Yum! Looks great thanks so much for sharing!! One question, what is coconut crunch listed in the ingredients? Is it dried flakes?

    • Hi, yes it is similar to dried flakes. Coconut crunch is a product from Banaban, it is air dried coconut, similar to bread crumbs. We offer it for sale (or mail order) in store at cafe $6.95 but you may be able to get it locally. You could use coconut flakes instead too.
