    d-licious's Note:

    This is super yummy! And goes well with Summer Melon Salsa (which I have also posted so you can search it) - This comes from Moosewood (my fav. cookbook ever!)They recommend using fillets such as catfish, snapper, salmon, or tilapia for this dish

      In a separate shallow dish, combine the pecans, bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, thyme, paprika, salt, and cayenne.

      Thank you for posting this recipe! I made it exactly as described and used Schwan's Orange Roughy filets. Oh boy, was that a great dinner! You deserve five stars on this one!!! Thanks again!

      Made this using tilapia and used 1/2 cup ground pecans mixed with 1/2 cup crushed whole-wheat crackers. I flipped the fillets halfway through so the breading could crisp on both sides, then slid the pan under the broiler for a couple of minutes on each side to crisp it nicely with the shorter cooking time (15 minutes for tilapia) after drizzling with melted butter.

      I thought this was really good flavor-wise, but the bottom og the fillets were a bit gummy from sitting on the baking pan. I think next time I will set the fillets on a rack over a baking pan, to get the crispy goodness aroung the entire fillet. I made a few substitutions in this recipe- thin snapper fillets instead of the recommendations in the description, and since they were so thin, I reduced the cooking time to 12 minutes and they came out perfectly moist. I also used hazelnuts instead of pecans- personal choice, I don't like pecans. I served with a side of roasted asparagus, for a really nice dinner. Made for PAC Spring 2009.
