Save Recipe


2 walleye fillets

1/2-cup flour; seasoned with salt and pepper

1/2-cup flour; seasoned with salt and pepper 

2 eggs, beaten with a little milk

1/4-cup fresh breadcrumbs

1/4-cup ground hazelnuts

clarified butter or vegetable oil for frying

lemon wedges for garnish


Mix breadcrumbs and hazelnuts together. Prepare fish by dredging it in the flour, dipping it in the egg wash and coating the fillets with the breadcrumb/hazelnut mixture. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat and fry the walleye fillets in clarified butter until the crust is a golden brown. Flip the fish and repeat on the other side. The flesh of the fish should be white all the way through, but not dry and flaky. Serve with lemon wedges for garnish.
