Very tasty and extremely easy to fix. I served with an orange marmalade, dijon mustard and horseradish sauce. My 6 year old loved it! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This is an amazing recipe! The only thing I did differently was to add panko breadcrumbs to the coconut. The kids and the grownups both can't get enough!
