Pecan-Crusted Trout

Sick of salmon? Don’t tell the other dietitians, sometimes we are as well. Unless you happen to live near a fresh fish market (we don’t), there seem to be slim pickings sometimes at the grocery store. Luckily, there are other fish in the sea (har)! We opted for this trout dinner and we were hooked, line, and sinker. Done with the fish analogies. Bye.
