Pecan Crusted Sea Bass
seriously, this is super easy! pecan crusted chilean sea bass. i recommend serving it with brown rice and a load of veggies. you can use this recipe with any white fish and really any kind of nut. i have used pistachios with rave reviews.
the sea bass turned out super moist and flaky. each bite just seemed to melt in my mouth and there was a touch of sweetness from the honey.
Pecan Crusted Fish
2 - 6oz pieces of white fish
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tbs dijon mustard
1 tbs raw honey
salt and pepper
2 tbs olive oil
heat skillet over medium heat and add olive oil.
meanwhile, pat fish dry with a paper towel and brush honey mustard on one side of fish. pour pecans onto plate. press fish, mustard side down into pecans. brush other side with honey mustard and press pecans into other side of fish. sprinkle with salt and pepper. repeat with other piece of fish.
reduce heat to medium low and sear fish in skillet approximately 5 minutes per side. remove from skillet and cover with foil. let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
