Usually when it comes to fish dishes I prefer something simple that really lets the fish shine. In this recipe, we use a touch of coconut flour (regular would work too) to create a crispy coating on the fish and then pair it with some simply prepared green beans for a low calorie, low carb meal. You could use any fish you like, but tilapia works well and is usually pretty affordable. Thinly sliced chicken or pork would work as well.
