Coconut and Lime Encrusted fish with Prawns

I was so excited when I read the ingredients for April’s Royal Foodie Joust, hosted by The Leftover queen, Jenny that I decided to take part, poor self esteem or not. The ingredients are lime, coconut and “something from the sea”. I opted for a thick kingklip steak and some prawns and decided to make a lime and coconut topping and serve it with lime butter.

Coconut and Lime Encrusted fish with Prawns


2 x 150gr hake steaks (white line fish)
zest of a lime
about 2 heaped Tbs of shredded coconut
1 glug of lime-infused olive oil
salt and pepper to taste.
Oil and a knob of butter for frying.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees
Mix zest, coconut and oil for topping.
Brown fish in oil and butter until just sealed with a bit of color.
Press topping on fish and prawns and finish off in hot oven for about 10-15 minutes.

For the prawns

Shell 8 medium-sized prawns, but keep the tail ends on for handling.
Use the same topping as for the fish.

Serve both with lemon butter.

    Nina, this is a fine entry for the joust and simply prepared (which is best for fresh seafood).

    I assume you mean 180C?

    Also, is there another name for this fish?

    This looks so good, great entry. Any suggestions on a fish in the States I could sub, and is the coconut sweetened?
    good luck!

  18. Nina's Kitchen (Nina Timm) 1 April 2008 at 9:55 pm #

    kimi – I think any white firm white fish would do,your fishmonger will be able to help you. No, the coconut is not sweetened.
