Pecan Crusted Trout (South Beach Diet Phase1)

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lizzie Rodriquez

From new book. Haven't tried. Pecans add even more protein, good monounsaturated fats, and tremendous taste to this easy baked trout dish. Serve tjhe fish with grilled asparagus tossed with a little garlic and extra virgin olive oil and roasted until golden and tender.
