      We really enjoyed this last night, and it's even tastier cold as a leftover the next day (I just had some). The flavor of the marinade is excellent. I let it soak for about 2 hours, then patted the fillets dry and dipped them in a beaten egg before rolling in the pecans (Vega Girl is right, chop those pecans VERY fine). Instead of pan-frying, I baked them---will try the pan method next time. served with herbed Israeli cous cous...lovely meal! Thanks for sharing.

      The flavor of this dish was absolutely wonderful and it got rave reviews from my family. Also-I reduced the marinade in the same pan that I cooked the fish in and then poured it over the fish once done...this was delicious. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because the pecans didn't stick to the fish very well which made it somewhat difficult to cook in the pan. Maybe I should have crushed the pecans more, but I did do it in a food processor. Thanks for a GREAT recipe...loved the flavors

      This is a great way to make fish! I used Southern Comfort for the bourbon and about 3 limes (didn't measure the juice). I only marinated the fish about an hour or so - very good. We served this with white rice and asparagus. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
