Pecan Crusted Trout

Author Notes: There's something about the natural sweetness of trout that, when combined with pecans and lightly kissed with honey, seems to pull it all together!LE BEC FIN

Serves: 2


  • 1/2 cup ground pecans
  • 1/2 cup dry unflavored bread crumbs
  • 2 pinches each Kosher salt and pepper
  • 4 3 ounce trout filets, skin on
  • EVOO or unsalted butter
  • 1-2 Tablespoons mild honey
In This Recipe


  1. Combine the pecans, bread crumbs and Salt and Pepper in a small shallow dish the size of a trout filet. Press the fish side of each filet in the mixture to coat evenly, place on its skin side on a flat surface and chill for 1/2 hour. Sautee the trout filets in a heated- til -hot blend of butter and EVOO., beginning with the nut side down. When browned after 2-3 minutes, turn fish over and finish 1-2 minutes, just til fish is opaque in the center. Plate fish and drizzle lightly with heated honey. (Heated maple syrup can be substituted if you have no honey.)
  2. * Nice accompanied by winter squash and sauteed greens or green beans, but not cheesy dishes.
