Step by Step Method
Crush pecans until fine; add pecans to Panko bread crumbs.
Heat pan with oil; you may need more oil.
Beat egg in another bowl.
In another bowl have flour, salt if using, and pepper (I buy the frozen indivdual salmon fillets and microwave them a touch so they are not cooked but not frozen either).
Dredge fish in the flour to which salt and pepper have been added. Shake off excess flour. Dip into egg and then into pecan bread crumb mixture.
Put in hot skillet skin side down.
Fry until golden; do not move fillets around a lot. Flip over; fry on other side until golden and fish in center is cooked to your liking.
Touch it lightly like steak; be careful not to burn yourself. You can also check doneness with a knife.
