Combine just enough garlic and olive oil to coat the bottom of a large, heavy frying pan and adjust the temperature to medium heat. Dust the trout fillets with flour, and then dip the fillets in the beaten egg mixture. Dredge the fillets in crushed pecans. Saute the fish in the olive oil until cooked through - approximately 4 minutes each side depending on thickness of fillets.
