Pecan Crusted Trout


  • 2 Trout filets

  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard

  • 1 tsp. Honey

  • ½ cup ground pecans (approx.)

  • ½ cup Panko bread (approx.)

  • Seasonings (lemon pepper, season salt or to your taste)


  1. Rinse the filets & pat dry with paper toweling

  2. Mix the mustard & honey together – adjust to your taste with more honey or mustard.

  3. Mix the ground pecans & Panko crumbs together – may season with a dash of

  4. lemon pepper/ seasoning salt

  5. Brush the honey/mustard mixture onto the flesh side of the filet

  6. Coat the flesh side of the filets with pecan/bread crumbs

  7. Prepare frying pan with oil – depending on size of the pan, about 1/4 cup (I use coconut oil, it’s better for higher temps & has a very light taste)

  8. Make sure oil is hot before adding filets

  9. Fry filets skin side down until about 2/3 cooked through – this will only take a few minutes depending on size of filets

  10. Carefully turn filets over & finish cooking - careful not to burn the pecan crust

**Adjust recipe as needed if cooking more filets
