Grease the baking dish with the oil.
Rub the lemon or lime juice into fish, and allow the fish to sit for 20 minutes.
Combine the chopped onion, thyme, salt, pepper and butter, and rub the mixture onto fish.
Place the fish in greased baking dish, and cover it with the coconut milk.
Sprinkle the fish with bread crumbs, cover it with aluminum foil, and bake it for 15 minutes.
Uncover the dish and bake the fish until bread crumbs are browned and the fish is flaky — about five more minutes
