“Many cooks are intimidated by cooking fresh fish and, as a result, miss out on the heart-healthy, brain-boosting, omega-3 fatty acids in salmon. Never fear, though; This fast fish recipe is foolproof.”

EXCELLENT recipe! I combined 2 tablespoons of butter (melted) and one table spoon of brown sugar and drizzled it on top of the coconut crust during the last 6 minutes of baking and it created a delicious sugar coating which added a ton of flavor! Everyone loved it--even my husband who isn't a big fan of salmon.

This recipe has potential, but needs a little work. I would marinate the salmon in the lime juice for a while before coating it in the panko and coconut. I found that when I cooked it at the reccommended temp, the coconut burned before the fish was cooked. By covering the fish during cooking, then uncovering and broiling at the end to brown and crisp coating, I think that problem could be solved. I served it with caribbean rice (from Zattarain's) and a salad. The rice and salmon go well together!!!

I tried this recipe last night and loved it. My husband cooked it for our 34th Anniversary dinner, with my help, and it was delicious. We did bake it covered with aluminum foil, and at the last 5 or 6 minutes we uncovered and drizzeled salmon with melted butter and brown sugar, and just baked it under the broiler till crispy. We both loved it. Thanks for the recipe and tips. Pauline
