I am hooked on this delicious recipe I learned to make it from a local chef.
- 8 (7 -8 ounce) trout fillets
- 3 cups pecans
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 eggs
- peanut oil (for frying)
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1⁄2 cup chopped fresh parsley
- Remove the fatty skin and bones from the fillets.
- Place the pecans in a food processor and pulse until the consistency of coarse meal.
- Season with salt and pepper and spread in a shallow dish.
- Mix the flour and paprika in a shallow dish.
- Whisk the water and eggs in a shallow bowl until blended.
- Coat the fillets with the flour mixture and shake off the excess.
- Dip in the egg mixture and shake off the excess.
- Coat with the ground pecans and press lightly to adhere.
- Pour enough peanut oil into a large skillet to measure ¼". Pan-fry the fillets in the hot oil for 2-3 minutes per side or until the fillets flake easily and are light brown.
- Drain on paper towels.
- Combine the honey and butter in a microwave-safe bowl.
- Microwave for 1 minute and stir.
- Drizzle the glaze over the fillets and sprinkle with the parsley.
I've given this 5 stars because it was delicious. I used a mixture of pecan, almond, pine nut and pistachios... and it still was great! (didn't have enough pecans!) I also forgot the honey so presumably it'll be even better next time. many thanks for a flexible tasty recipe!
This was really good! Only change I made was that I added a little lemon juice to the honey butter...yummy!
I tried this with filet of sole. Nothing to improve on at all. Served it with steamed broccoli and a spinach salad.
