Combine sugar and lemon juice in a heavy skillet.
Cook over a low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until melted sugar has a deep golden color.
Stir in pecans and pour into a large, oiled pan or on a marble slab.
Work fast, spreading the nougat with an oiled spatula as thin as possible.
Cool until solid, then break into pieces.
