Pecan-Crusted Sea Trout with Honey Mustard Green Onion Sauce


  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Honey Mustard
  • 1 heaping Tbsp., parsley, chopped
  • 3 Green Onions, chopped
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Sea Trout:

  • 4-6 (6oz.) Sea Trout fillets
  • Canola Oil
  • 1 stick Unsalted Butter

Pecan Crust:

  • 1 cup Pecans, finely chopped
  • 2 cups finely crushed Potato Chips
  • 1 Tbsp. Dried Parsley
  • 1 Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/2 Tsp. Cajun Seasoning


  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 Tsp. Cajun Seasoning


Sauce: Whisk together all ingredients and set aside

Sea Trout: In a large bowl thoroughly combine the potato chips, pecans, parsley, crushed red pepper flakes and Cajun seasoning. In a separate bowl make the batter by whisking together the milk, egg, flour and Cajun seasoning. Dip each fillet in the batter, then press into the pecan-chip mixture, getting a heavy, even coating on both sides. Repeat with all fillets, set aside and let sit about 10 minutes before cooking.

Heat 3 tablespoons butter and 3 tablespoons oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sauté until crust is browned and fish is cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

To Serve: Place fillet on a plate and spoon sauce over the top. Garnish with extra green onions and parsley and serve immediately.

Buen Provecho!!!
