1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
1/2 cup chopped green onions, optional

1. Season filets with salt and pepper.  Arrange fillets in single layer in rectangular baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray.  Top evenly with bread crumbs.
2. Cook under broiler until fish flakes easily when tested with fork.  Transfer to serving dish; keep warm.

Terrific Tidbit: To test fish for doneness, prod it with a fork at its thickest point. Properly cooked fish is opaque, has milky white juices and just begins to flake easily. Don’t overcook or it will be dry.

Just love this mini food processor. Honestly, I only had the big Cuisinart food processor and then when I was cooking at my mom’s house, she pulled this one out. It works great and perfect for the small cutting jobs.
