About Cuero Pecan House

Welcome to the Cuero Pecan House – your one stop shop for delicious homemade treats and of course featuring the Texas state nut, the pecan. Our friendly staff is here to assist you in finding the perfect treat for yourself or a gift for another. 

A little more about us - The Pecan House opened their doors in the 1960 by J. F. Elder and was primarily a seasonal operation. In 2003 we (Annette and Erwin Rath) decided to expand to stay open year round and expanded our offerings. And, our tasty specialty products, as well as our fresh pecans, have been keeping the locals (and the visitors to town) quite happy! 

Featuring freshly seasoned pecans, as well as cakes, cookies, pies, gourmet-to-go casseroles, gift baskets, local jams, pecan oil and other area specialties, we think and hope you agree that it’s truly a slice of heaven located in the heart of downtown Cuero.

We’d love to see you! We are located next to the railroad tracks at 104 W. South Railroad St. You can also place an order at 361-275-5632.

Pecan Crusted Fish


  • 4  cup flour, seasoned to taste with salt and pepper
  • 1 cup Cuero Pecan House Pecan Pieces roughly chopped    When you put this here can you make it link to our webpage
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cup milk
  •  Vegetable oil, as needed to fill a cast iron skillet by 1/2 inch
  • 2-3 small fish fillets, seasoned with salt


Special Equipment: Candy/frying thermometer, cast iron skillet

Divide the seasoned flour into two medium mixing bowls. Add the chopped pecan pieces to one of the two bowls and mix well.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Add the milk, and whisk to combine.

Fill a cast iron skillet with vegetable oil until it's filled up to half an inch, then heat over medium heat. Adjust heat to maintain a temperature of 325 degrees (this is where the thermometer comes in handy).

Dredge the fish fillets in the seasoned flour without the pecans, then in the egg mixture. Repeat one or two times to develop a batter layer on the fish fillet. After the final dredge in the egg mixture, dredge the fillets in the pecan flour, pressing slightly to make sure the pecan pieces stick to the fish.

Carefully place the fillets in the hot oil and fry for about 2-3 minutes or until the pecans around the edges begin to brown. Carefully turn the fish over using a spatula and fry for another 2-3 minutes. Remove the fish from the pan, and place on a plate layered with paper towels. Once drained, serve hot.
