Best Fried Walleye

untitled

This is the recipe we’ve been using for 25 years. It’s light and clean-tasting because there’s no sense in masking the naturally delicious flavor of such an awesome Canadian delicacy! No tartar sauce needed!

INGREDIENTS

4 walleye fillets

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 pinch salt (optional)

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 cups crushed saltine crackers

Vegetable oil for frying

1 lemon, cut into wedges

DIRECTIONS

Check the fillets to ensure all bones and skin have been removed. Cut the fillets into manageable pieces, if necessary.

Place the beaten eggs a bowl and set aside. Combine the flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in another bowl. Pour the cracker crumbs into a third bowl.

Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Dip the fillets into the flour mixture, then the eggs, and then the cracker crumbs and set fillets aside on a plate.

Test the oil: it will crackle and pop when a cracker crumb is dropped into it. Carefully lower 2 fillets into the hot oil.

Cook until browned, about 3 minutes per side, using tongs to turn the fillets.

Walleye

Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with remaining fillets. Serve with fresh lemon wedges.
PREP 30 minutes
COOK 15 minutes
READY IN 45 minutes


FOOTNOTES

To crush the saltines, place the crackers in a re-sealable gallon-size plastic freezer bag and roll with a rolling pin (or whatever you’ve got) until they are a fine “bread crumb” consistency.

BACON WRAPPED MUSTARD WALLEYE

WALLEYE RECIPE

  •   Serves: 4
  •   Course: Lunch, Dinner

 

 

 

Ingredients

  • 3  cups flour
  • 1  cup cracker crumbs
  • 5 tbsp seasoning salt
  • 6 walleye fillets, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
  • 3  tbsp lemon pepper
  • 2  lb side bacon, sliced
  • 2  cups Dijon mustard

Preparation

  1. Combine flour, cracker crumbs and seasoning salt; set aside.
  2. Sprinkle fillets with lemon pepper, then wrap each cube with a bacon slice, secure with a toothpick and cover with mustard.
  3. Completely cover the cubes with the flour mixture. Deep-fry in canola oil until golden brown. A 1 1/2-inch cube should take about 1 to 2 minutes to cook if the oil is at the right temperature.
  4. Serve with deep-fried potatoes, beans and bread
  1. Frying tip:
    Before frying your fish,  make sure the oil is sufficiently hot. To test if it’s ready, drop in a piece of fish: if it sinks and doesn’t quickly bubble back up to the surface, the oil isn’t hot enough. Also make sure that the oil remains hot until the      fish is fully cooked; lower temperatures mean a longer cooking time, and      the longer the fish sits in the oil, the soggier it will get.
