Bahamas: Coconut-Lime Flounder Fillets

Coconut-Lime Flounder Fillets Bahamas

“…Put the lime
with the coconut, then you feel better”
(Harry Nilsson)

I understand that this is the third day in a row I’m eating fish. Honestly, I could eat fish most everyday of the year. Why? Because I like it…more than “like”–I adore eating fish, am passionate about it, and would swim the Atlantic for a wonderful feast of fish!

Routinely eating fish can be a costly indulgence, especially for the freshest, prime species. I rationalize this week’s purchases with the amount I saved on air-fare, by not traveling to remote destinations for spring break.

I used a thick, meaty fillet of flounder and it was exceptional. but any moist, meaty fish would work well in this recipe.

This recipe was adapted from the Coconut-Lime Fillet recipe from “The Best of the Bahama’s” Cookbook.
