  • 1/3 cup duck sauce (sweet and sour sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, low sodium
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic, finely minced

Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. In large bowl, combine peanuts, cereal crumbs, coconut, and 1 tbsp. scallion; set aside.

In small bowl, combine duck sauce, soy sauce, garlic, and remaining 1 tablespoon scallion. Remove 2 tablespoons of mixture; brush over fillets.
