fish with vanilla/lemon sauce

I went to dinner the other night (my weekly night out with the girls), and my friend Mel had the most amazing fish. It was listed as a 'pecan encrusted fish of the day with a vanilla-lemon sauce.' The fish was tilapia, and was on a bed of rice in a very sweet, aromatic sauce. It was almost like 'dessert fish', and we all said it sounded odd, but it was honestly one of the best things I've ever eaten. Has anyone heard of this? Or, more to the point, does anyone have a recipe? I searched the web and found a lot of 'fish with vanilla' combinations that seemed to be Tahitian in origin, but no recipes that looked similar. I'd love to know how to recreate it, even though I'm afraid I may have a heck of a time getting my husband to even try it. (He's a traditionalist where food is concerned.)
