  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly coat the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Drizzle lime juice over one side of each tilapia fillet; place the fillets with the juiced-side down into the prepared baking dish. Spread a thin layer of yogurt atop each fillet.
  3. Mix pecans and coconut in a bowl. Divide equally between the tilapia fillets and lightly press mixture into the yogurt layer.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 15 minutes.

Great ingredients that, in my case, they didn't come together to stand out. It was really just ok.
