Default White unicorn

Walleye have been the white unicorn for me to catch. I can't even tell you how many hours I've spent fishing for these stupid fish to only come home empty handed. Today was the day

He ended up going 23" long.

Anyone care to post their favorite walleye recipes I'm going to cook him up for lunch.

Congrats!

Do me a favor and don't microwave your fish. A guy did that at work the other day, and I think half of my office was ready to put his head on a spike.

Fillet and then cut in to smaller thinner pieces. Soak in a mixture of 1 cup milk mixed with an egg. In a second bowl, prepare breading with 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup corn meal, and seasonings of choice. I prefer some italian herbs, garlic, pepper, and cajun if so inclined. After soaking in milk, dip in breading mix to cover fillet. Cook in oil until golden. Eat. Delicious!


Way to go on the eye. I might have to give it a go myself, especially since ice fishing appears over.

I went with a parchment paper recipe. I just put it in the oven on 350. Going to cook it for 20 minutes. Usually like to cook fish less but it's a big fillet and I want the potatoes cooked.

Ingredients
Yellow idaho potatoes sliced thin
Butter
Fish
Tabasco sauce
Salt
Pepper
Thin sliced onions
Thin sliced lemons
Beans
A little olive oil on the paper spread thin with a brush.

20 minutes until it's finished.

Not bad. Walleye is very mild. I think it would have been better fried and eaten with tarter sause.

That fish looks really good. I cook all white meat fish using the recipe for "poor man's lobster". Try it.
