Jalapeño Encrusted Cod With Lime Beurre Blanc Sauce (GF/DF/Soy Free) (Edit recipe)

This is a play on a popular dish from @lazydaysislamorada. Our best friends have taken us over the years, and we fell in love with the food. This time around, due to celiac I had to skip this meal, but I knew I was going to give it my best shot at home! In my recreation, tender cod is covered in crispy jalapeño panko breading & fried to perfection. It is placed on top of a lime and coconut yogurt sauce, and topped with cheese, scallion, & tomato.
