Hatch Chile Pecan Crusted Fish

Today was a bit of a sad day, because today I used up the last of my hatch chile-flavored pecans. I had such a great time using these life-changing bits of deliciousness. You definitely need to give these a try because not only are they amazingly versatile, but, no matter how you use them, they are going to add so much depth and flavor to your dish that you will wonder how you ever got along without them.
I decided on salmon for this evening, and wanted to do something different, so created a nut crust topping using the Hatch Chile Pecans. It was so good, that I, quite embarrassingly, made “yummy” sounds while I was eating it. I chose to use it on salmon (because that was what I had), but you can use this on any variety of your choice.
Hatch Chile Pecan Crusted Fish

2 fillets fresh fish
½ c. ground
Melissa’s Red Hatch Chile Pecans
1 t.
Creole seasoning
1 T. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 T. melted butter
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Rinse fish and pat dry. Combine remaining ingredients (I use a
Ninja Mini Chopper for this. It makes it so easy, and everything is mixed thoroughly. Honestly, I would be lost without it). Place fish fillets in a baking dish, mound filling on top of each, covering completely and bake 10 to 15 minutes (depending upon your choice of fish and thickness). Serve.

Other recipes using Hatch Chile Pecans include Green Hatch Chile Pecan Pesto and Kick-in-the-Pants Chocolate Chip Cookies.

There is so much to love about that crust - butter, Parmesan, the pecans. I'm sorry your Hatch pecans are gone. And it's OK to make yummy sounds when you're eating. ;)
That shot showing the salmon interior is the money shot for me. It looks so buttery and good, and I can imagine it with that delicious coating. When we were at the grocery store yesterday I told my husband "next time" we are buying some fresh salmon. I know you'll cringe when I tell you that he said "sure, as long as I have tartar sauce." Tartar sauce on fresh salmon! The horror.

That looks and sounds so good! I really need to invest in a small toaster oven to make these oven recipes - its so hot here I cannot turn on our oven. Summer tends to go clear thru to December in Central Texas...
