Heat the oil in a large, deep pot to 350 degrees F.
Pat fillets dry with clean paper towels and season, to taste with salt, lemon pepper, and garlic powder. Dust lightly with 1 cup of the dry batter mix. Mix the 2 remaining cups of dry batter mix with the water and add the chopped pecans.
Coat the fillets with the batter and place in the hot vegetable oil. Fry until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes. Set aside on paper towels.
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and add chopped green onions and parsley. Saute for 3 minutes. Add the soups, cheese, and liquid crab boil and continue to cook for 10 minutes. Add crabmeat and cook an additional 5 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
Prepare a bed of sauce on a serving platter and place fish on sauce. Partially cover fillets with sauce. Garnish with pecans and parsley.
