I love pecan-crusted fish. This is a light recipe, but you can serve it with a kicked-up tartar sauce as well.

  1. Combine breadcrumbs, pecans, salt, garlic, and pepper in a shallow dish.
  2. Combine buttermilk and hot sauce (such as Tabasco) in a medium bowl.
  3. Place flour in a third dish.
  4. Dredge 1 fillet in flour, dip into buttermilk mixture, then into breadcrumb mixture. Repeat with remaining fillets.
  5. Heat 1 1/2 tsp oil in a large skillet (non-stick works best) over medium-high heat.

  7. Add remaining oil and cook additional 2 fillets.
  8. Serve with lemon!
