  1. Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Mix unsweetened coconut, coconut flour, and salt together on a plate.
  3. Brush egg over each tilapia fillet. Press each fillet into coconut mixture until evenly coated. Gently toss between your hands so any coconut that hasn't stuck can fall away. Place the coated fillets onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.
  4. Fry fillets in the hot oil until golden brown and fish flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

My daughter helped and it was easy quick and wonderful. I just used regular flour though.
