  • Prepare the Pecan Crab Relish, and set aside. Prepare the Lemon Butter Sauce, and keep warm.
  • Preheat the oven to 375?F.
  • Sprinkle 3/4 teaspoon Creole Seasoning over each fish steak or fillet, and pat it on with your hands.

Turn the fish back to the first side and place the skillet in the over until the fish is brown and crisp, for about 4 minutes.
  • To serve, pour about 1/3 cup of the Lemon Butter Sauce on each of 4 dinner plates, place a fillet on the sauce, and top with 1/2 cup of the Pecan Crab Relish.
