ground pecan meal
4 (4 ounce) fillets
Hint - Pecan meal is just finely ground pecans. Or you can take chopped pecans, put into a zippy bag and crush them with a rolling pin. You just don't want big pieces.
When I created this recipe, the idea was to find a flavorful, but light crust for the delicate fish.
Well done. Nice light flavor. Served well with Risotto
I made this tonight and it was wonderful! I did find a pecan panko breading mix at Whole Foods so I didn't have to add much seasoning but the fish cooked perfectly. Served with some risotto and fresh advocado/tomatoes. Super quick and easy summer week night dish.
I made my own pecan meal for this recipe by putting whole pecans in my chopper and pulsing until they were turned to crumbs. However, I don't think that worked very well because the pecans started to become moist and mushy (on their way to becoming nut butter). Next time, I will add flour to the mix and I think that will help prevent this problem and help the breading to not clump on the fish. This recipe had nice flavor and walleye is a meaty fish, so my husband didn't have as much a problem with it as he sometimes does with other kinds of fish.
Just made this tonight - Wonderful! I did make a mess of the coating. After putting the first fillet through the pecan meal, the remaining meal turned into a goopy sludge and it was difficult to coat the other fillets. It still tasted fantastic - just not very uniform or as appealing in appearance as it might have been. I think next time I might try dipping the fillets in the egg mixture and then spooning the coating over each fillet. Also wondering if it would be good with a coating of 2/3 pecan meal to 1/3 panko crumbs? Pecans sure ain't cheap.
Delicious! One of my new favorites. We call it Pickerel up in Canada. I would make my own pecan meal next time as the store bought one is a bit too fine and I think this would be nice with a little more texture. Serves with sautéed green beans and grape tomatoes and fingerling potatoes.
Yummy! We used Swai fish, but can't wait to try it with fresh-caught walleye. Very quick and easy. The whole family enjoyed it (even picky young kids)!
Very good recipe for fish. I used tilapia and it was delicious and very quick to make.
