I enjoyed this. The coconut works well with the fish.

This is one of our favourite haddock recipes now. It also goes well with mango and is great for people who think haddock can be a bit dull.

Just made this for tea tonight. Used haddock instead of cod and served with a peashoot and avocado salad, served the mayonnaise on the side to dip the fish into. Was so easy to make and really delicious! Could probably have done with more mayonnaise, my fish fillets were quite large.
