Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Season the egg white. Dip the chicken in the egg, then in the coconut. Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 20-25 mins, turning once until the chicken is cooked through.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, tip the cucumber slices into a colander, sprinkle with a little salt and leave for 5 mins to drain. Pat the cucumber slices dry with kitchen paper. In a bowl, mix the onion with the sugar and vinegar, then add the cucumber and serve with the chicken.

RECIPE TIPS
TIP

Mixing the red onion slices with the vinegar and setting aside for a minute softens the onion’s flavour and texture.

MAKE IT WITH FISH - COCONUT-CRUSTED SALMON

You can replace the chicken with salmon fillets or any firm white fish. Brush the surface of 2 salmon fillets with the seasoned egg white, then scatter over the coconut. Grill for 8 mins until the salmon is cooked through and the coconut is golden.
