1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
4  6-ounce snapper fillets
4 tablespoons butter, divided
1/2 cup pecan pieces
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

Combine flour and seasonings on a shallow plate. Dredge the fillets in flour mixture, coating evenly. Heat the oil in a large nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, pan fry fillets for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a platter and keep warm. In a medium pan; melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat until foamy. Add the pecans and cook for about 1 1/2 minutes, stirring constantly, until lightly toasted.
