Honey-Pecan Baked Cod

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

    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.

    Not only was this recipe easy, but the taste was awesome. I am making it again this evening.

    I made the mistake of using frozen fish. Make sure it is defrosted. Very tasty.
