Bread Crumb & Coconut Crusted Fish Fillet Burger

Remember I had my very first McD Fillet O Fish burger when I was 8 or 9 ! That is the first time I visited Singapore with my grandfather. We were staying with my uncle, one of my father's younger sibling. He's a police officer back then but already retired now. And that is the very first time, my uncle introduced me to McDonald, an unfamiliar name to me as a small town girl. ha... He said McD has the best fish burger ever and suggested me to give it a try. And I did... wow.... that is something ! The best food I ever eaten . Totally unforgettable! Untill today, I'm still very addicted to it.

And today, I am making my very own McD Fillet O Fish at home.

Ingredients :
4 burger size fish fillet
salt & pepper
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup bread crumb
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Method :
(1) marinade fish fillet with salt & pepper to taste.
(2) simply coat fish fillet with flour.
(3) then dip it to beaten eggs, make it's well coated.
(4) cover the fish fillet with coconut & bread crumb mixture.
(5) finally, pan fry them untill cooked with just enough butter.

The desiccated coconut is total surprise to me. So coincidence that I have not enough bread crumb for the coating and decided to add in the coconut. No regret at all ! It was fantastic.

Yes, this is the filling that I've been looking for. Hot thick crusted fish fillet in the middle of my burger bread. So, do you think you can still go to bed without having one of these tonight???? haha.... Sweet dream !

Fillet O Fish was my favourtie burger when I was little :) Now I usually go for the McChicken coz the fillet o fish is way too small :( I've never though to make my own fillet o fish- this is definitely something I'll have to try one day! I agree with everyone else- this looks even better than McD's! I love the fact you use coconut- it sounds so yummy!

Thank you everyone for spending your time here with me. It's such a great pleasure for having you here. I'll try my very best to follow up & catch with you.

Alice : Ues, I used frozen white dory fillet. You may also try using any other white fish fillet but be sure it's not too thick.

Anncoo : And even Batam ! haha...

Hope you're all having a fabulous day as well.

Blessings, Kristy

this is like a 100x healthier than macs (:

here's an idea for your yummy fish fillet: use avocado to make a healthier kind of mayonaise (:
