This was very tasty! I think it relies too much on salt for the flavouring, but the rosemary is a nice balance. If I do anything different next time I'll use panko instead of flour, and instead of using egg, will just use a little bit of melted butter!

I gave 3 stars only because it calls for too much salt. I would half the amount of salt and it would make the pecan crusted trout perfect. I will make it again though....

This was very tasty, not to mention quick, easy, and healthy! I also substituted gluten free flour and it worked beautifully. Definitely a keeper.

We fish for wild trout every year and just brought home 74 of them for our freezer. Needless to say, I've tried many recipes for trout, but this one is the very best I've tried. I did swap the flour for Panko, the egg for 1/4c melted butter, and I will use half the salt next time. Delicious! I will make this recipe many times! Thank you, Devin!

Amazing recipe it was so good. My fillets were large so I made extra pecan crust and I only had fresh rosemary which I prefer. I washed the trout and dried well, laid the fillets on a buttered foiled baking sheet skin side down, dusted the fillets with flour, brushed on the egg and then coated with pecan mixture. I baked them for 20 mins at 400 degrees. I will be making this again and trying it with pickerel.

I made this for my fiancé and it was a huge hit. I actually did skin on fillets and I took the first persons advise by swapping out the flour or Panko and swapping the egg for a mixture of butter and a little but of honey for some added sweetness. I coated the trout with Panko then brushed on my butter mixture. I just patted on the pecan blend I loaded it up. We paired this with some couscous and it was a home run. WHEN I make this again I will also add some asparagus or maybe some brusselsprouts to make this a complete the meal.

Adding a little lemon juice once done made this a 4 star. Loved the flavour of the rosemary.
