The fish turned out crispy on the outside and delic on the inside. Will do this recipe again. Being a recipe follower, I would have liked it to show oil temp. and approximate time to fry the fish. I punted (oil at 370 degrees or about) and, surprisingly, it turned out great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Except for grilling which I'm good at, this was a good starter recipe for me. I used only breadcrumbs on one fillet and added some basil and oregano to the breadcrumbs for the other. Wonderful dinner. Moving from Chicago to Minnesota, I plan on cooking walleye often now. Especially after using this recipe. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
