Can you believe it!!) and these Coconut Shrimp were on of the very first recipes we ever posted. Crazy. I still love that photo very much. I am also crushing hard on the recipe because I have a new love affair with coconut as evidence from our Coconut and Kale Smoothie we recently posted. Salmon is one of my favorite fish to eat, and when you bake these up they have such a nice crispy texture on the outside while still being buttery on the inside. They are perfect! We made these as little appetizer bites, but you could make a whole fillet like this. Enjoy guys! ☺

    Tiny crispy fish bitlets! I love it. :) These sound so delicious and simple to make.

    Whoa. Back in 2011 I was just a reader who lurked, never commented, and was secretly obsessed with everything you two did. The only thing that has changed is I comment now ;) I love everything about this, especially the meyer lemon and honey combo you have going on. Those two flavors together – wow.

    I made these as a filling for tacos swapping in a spicy mayo in place of the yogurt sauce. Was a big hit! Would definitely make again.

    I made these tonight and for the life of me, could NOT get them to brown! I coated them in coocnut oil spray, and then tried to broil a bit followed by another round of spray with regular cooking spray… What did I do wrong? Luckily the sauce was super delish and we all are them anyways, but they definitely were not as crispy and tasty as your recipe appears. Any advice would be appreciated! :)
