    I've given this 5 stars because it was delicious. I used a mixture of pecan, almond, pine nut and pistachios... and it still was great! (didn't have enough pecans!) I also forgot the honey so presumably it'll be even better next time. many thanks for a flexible tasty recipe!

    This was really good! Only change I made was that I added a little lemon juice to the honey butter...yummy!

    I tried this with filet of sole. Nothing to improve on at all. Served it with steamed broccoli and a spinach salad.

    Very good - and that is coming from someone who seldom eats fish! I had to use tilapia and it worked well. As you can see in the photo, I left the pecans a bit chunky because we like a crunchy texture. Thanks for sharing.


In my world a recipe is a guideline to cooking and can be altered to suit one's taste. I collect cookbooks for a hobby and have made at least one recipe from each one. And i am not that other Smurf.
