Given how much I love coconut shrimp, I am surprised that I never thought to use coconut to crust fish.  Since I wanted some extra crunch, I wanted to add something to the coconut crust and cashews seemed like the perfect thing to create a tropical dish.  You can make this with pretty much any fish you like - haddock, cod, snapper, halbut, and even salmon.  Then top it with the simple cucumber and pineapple salsa and dinner is ready.
