Baked Pecan Crusted Orange Roughy

This is another winning recipe from my dear friend Toni.  She says that this recipe also fries really well and that any light and flaky fish (like tilapia) will substitute well.


2 large pieces of orange roughy, fresh or thawed
2 eggs
2 Tablespoon milk
1 cup flour
2 cups bread crumbs
1 cup crushed pecans
nonstick spray for baking
large baking pan or cookie sheet

In one bowl whisk eggs and milk, set aside till ready to use

Mix crushed pecans and bread crumbs in seperate bowl or plate, depending on size of fish.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Spray pan with nonstick spray for baking.

Roll fish in flour, dip in egg mixture, then bread with crumb/pecan mixture till fully coated and lay in baking pan or on cookie sheet. Do the same for other piece of fish.

Let set for aobut 1-2 minutes and then spray the top lightly with nonstick spray for baking.

Bake uncovered for 15-20 minute as ovens may vary.

Serve with steamed vegetables and wild rice.

Since recipe is for 2-3 large peices of fish it is really easy to double recipe.
