I have seen a lot of recipes for walleye fish, but they all seemed to be breaded and deep-fried or battered and deep-fried or just baked... So I figured if you can make fish cakes tasty with salmon and so on... Why not post a recipe up for walleye... Frankly I am just tired of deep frying up walleye once a week. It is time for a tasty change.

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine the cornflake crumbs, bread crumbs, and flour in a shallow dish; set aside. Grind the walleye fillets, or chop finely and place into a mixing bowl. Add the carrots, zucchini, onions, garlic, and eggs. Season with dry mustard, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. Mix with your hands until evenly combined.

  • Form the walleye mixture into 1/3-cup cakes about 3/4-inch thick, and press into the cornflake mixture. Set the walleye cakes onto a baking sheet in a single layer -- do not stack.

  • Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the walleye cakes in batches until firmed and golden brown on each side, about 8 minutes per side.

I love cooking walleye:-). I live in Montana and my kids HATE the taste of trout. The great thing about walleye is it only tastes like what you season it with. The white meat is fantastic. Anyways this is a wonderful recipe. Great job! I have made mine with simple Oatmeal just like you would a meat loaf but yours kicked butt! Great job! Read More

I love salmon patties and was looking for a fish cake recipe to make with some bass filets I had from a recent fishing trip. I used this recipe as a starting point. I personally don't like veggies in things like these so I left all but the onions out. I also used crackers instead of the bread crumbs (really not a difference). Let me say these were really good. I am sure they are good with the veggies if you are into that sort of thing. Read More

This recipe was a little bit complicated and very messy! The mixture was a little on the thin side but it may have been because I didn't have quite enough fish and added an extra egg on accident. I also used peanut oil for frying instead of vegetable/canola oil. The end result was delicious so I'll definitely make these again! Read More
