Sauteed Tilapia with Coconut Citrus Sauce

2 Tbsp fresh parsley, coarsely chopped

Juice of 1 key lime

Juice of 1 lemon

3 Tablespoons Kelapo coconut oil, divided

1/4 cup white wine


Preheat large saute pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Place seasoned salt and 3 teaspoons flour in zip-top bag; shake to mix. Add fish to zip-top bag; seal tightly and shake to coat fish. Place 1 Tbsp Kelapo in pan, then add fish; cook 3 minutes. Add 1 Tbsp Kelapo to center of pan. Flip fish and distribute coconut oil under each fillet. Cook 3 more minutes or until fish is golden and flake easily. Transfer fish to serving plates. Add wine, 1 tablespoon Kelapo, 1 teaspoon flour, and lime and lemon juices to pan. Heat and stir about one minute or until thickened. Stir in parsley and serve sauce over fish, garnish with wedges of lemon. Serves 4.”
