I have never met a pecan-crusted anything I didn't like. So I thought I"d post this recipe I found on the Honeysuckle White Web site (www.honeysucklewhite.com). In all fairness, I need to admit I have not tried this recipe yet - but I will be trying in next week and will post a short review of it at that time. There are quite a few calories per serving, so I'll most likely be altering the recipe somehow to make it a little more diet-friendly. Enjoy!
