1/2 cup pecan pieces
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 pound grouper fillet, cut diagonally into 4 ounce pieces
salt and pepper, to taste
1/3 cup flour
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 lemon, juiced
1 bunch fresh Italian parsley, chopped


Process the pecans and bread crumbs in a food processor just until a coarse mixture forms.

Season the fillet pieces with salt and pepper. Dredge in the flour; dip in the egg. Coat with the pecan mixture.

Melt 1/4 cup of the butter in a nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the fish on 1 side until brown. Turn the fish.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes or until the fillet pieces flake easily. Remove the fish to a warm platter; wipe the skillet.

Add the remaining butter to the skillet. Cook over high heat until the butter is foamy and dark brown, stirring constantly. Add the lemon juice and parsley, stirring until combined. Pour over the grouper. Serve immediately.

We've made this with snapper as well as grouper.
It is the best fish recipe we've ever had.

My husband hate's fish but I tried this anyway in hopes he would have anew for fish! He loved it I had one piece and he at the rest just two of so I had one piece. The only suggestion he made was to add capers to the butter and I did. We will absolutely do this again! Florida loves you!
