Lock your door and hide the key. Not a fish dish you'd be too willing to share. Made for Best of 2009.

Originally rated on 1/19/09 - This recipe made it into my book#266453. FANTASTIC fish recipe. I prepared exactly as directed and it was perfect. Make sure to chop or pound your walnuts so there are no big pcs. The fish was tender, flavorful and the crust was soooooooooooooooooooooooo good - crispy and full of that walnut flavor. I was worried that the taste of sage would be too much but it wasn't at all. I wish I could give this recipe 10 stars!

Great flavor! I used candied walnuts and it added a bit of sweetness that my guests and I really enjoyed. I think I had the oil heated too high, as it was smoking and I definitely ended with a blackened version, but it was great!
