    Fish and crust:
    2 lbs tuna filet
    1tbsp butter
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp white pepper
    1 1/4 cup pecans, ground
    1 tsp parsley
    1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1tbsp lemon juice

    Butter mix:
    1/4 cup butter
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    1 tsp parsley


Melt butter in a small saucepan until slightly browned. Add parsley and lemon juice.

Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper. In cast iron skillet, heat 1 tbsp butter until hot. Sear fish 3 minutes on each side--you can cook longer if you like your fish well done. Spoon 1/4 cup of pecan mixture over the top of the fish. Place in oven set on broil 5 1/2" from the heat. Leave oven door partially open. Broil until slightly browned. Transfer to a plate and drizzle with the lemon butter.

If you don't have cast iron skillets, use your regular nonstick pan to cook the fish. Use a baking sheet and either coat it with nonstick spray or pour the drippings from the pan on it and then place the fish on that to broil.
