If you go to the seafood section of your supermarket, you will find Clubhouse Tempura Batter, which is the batter you get in Japanese restaurants. Just follow the instructions when making the mix, except add a level teaspoon of salt. Then dip the Walleye fillet in the batter and deep fry until golden brown. You might want to make the batter a little bit thicker than they say in the instructions.
Walleye Pan Fried or Deep Fried with Shake-&-Bake:
Lemon Pepper Shake-&-Bake is great for deep-frying. Just clean the Walleye fillets off and make sure they are damp, shake the fish in the mix and deep fry in oil or lard. For a thicker batter coating, dip the fillet in beaten eggs and then roll in Shake-&-Bake.
Baked Walleye is one of the healthy ways of eating fish if you go easy on the butter. The only other way, which is more healthy, is poached Walleye. Most fisherpersons would consider that a waste of Walleye. Cooking walleye with vegetables or stuffing is excellent and a very enjoyable change to fried or deep fried Walleye and has a lot more flavor than poached.
Baked Walleye #1 (Butter Lemon & Peppers):
• Get a big piece of heavy-duty tin foil and smear butter over the middle.
• Put chopped onions, mushrooms and green peppers on the tin foil. (half of what you have)
• Place your Walleye fillets on the vegetables and with a knife, smear a generous helping of butter on the fillets.
• Sprinkle salt, pepper and lemon juice on the fillets and the vegetables.
• Put more vegetables on top and sprinkle more salt, pepper and lemon juice.
• Place a few blobs of butter on top.
• Rap the tin foil up and cook at low to medium heat for about 10 to 15 minutes. If you hear the butter boiling, you have the right temperature.
Baked Walleye #2 (Turkey Stuffing):
• Get a big piece of heavy-duty tin foil and smear butter in the middle of the foil and then shack poultry seasoning, salt and pepper onto the butter.
• Put one Walleye fillet down on the butter.
• Cover the fillet with Stove Top Stuffing. Use the regular stuffing for Turkey or Chicken.
• Then put the second Walleye fillet on the stuffing and roll it all up in the tin foil.
• Wrap up the foil and cook for 8 minutes on each side on medium heat.
• Fresh Walleye taste awesome, especially when you catch them in the cool crystal clean lakes of Northern Ontario. The best way to catch Walleye is at Legends Lodge on Lac Seul.
