3. Use a chef’s knife to finely chop the pecans.  Use your fingertips to lightly press the chopped pecans onto the top side of the fish fillets.

4. Place the butter in a microwave safe dish, cover it with paper towel and microwave on high power until melted about 30 seconds.  Meanwhile squeeze the juice from the lemon halves through a strainer over the fish.  Spoon the melted butter evenly over the fillets.
