One night at dinner, while vacationing in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we tried a pecan-encrusted trout that we've tried to re-create. We enjoy this tasty version with fresh or frozen cod often. —Lana German, Lenoir, North Carolina

"Very easy and delicious!"

"YUCK! There's not too much I don't like, but I couldn't eat this and I couldn't make my family eat it either."

"I would definitely make this again. We liked it very much, and it was certainly easy. I used haddock rather than cod, and I didn't use honey. I used 2 tablespoons of my homemade brown-sugar syrup, which to me has a more subtle flavor than honey. Pure maple syrup would probably work well, too."
