Island flavors like coconut, lime, ginger, and mango make this quick and easy fish recipe taste like something you'd order at a restaurant during a beach vacation. While this recipe is delicious and doable any time of year, we love to use it to transport to another land on a cold winter day.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat broiler. In a small bowl combine coconut oil, lime juice, ginger, coriander, turmeric, and cayenne pepper. Season fish with salt and black pepper. Spread skinless sides of fish with coconut oil mixture.

  • Place fish on a greased broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from heat 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily. Serve topped with chutney and cilantro.


Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, just like shortening, and liquefies when it’s warm. It doesn’t matter whether it’s solid or liquid when you stir it into the spices to make the rub.

If you like a lot of flavor you will enjoy this recipe. It is very easy to make and cook quickly. I could not get red snapper and used mahi mahi instead (baked at 425 for about 25 minutes). It came out very good. I served it with whole grain couscous. Will definitely make again!
