Best Fried Walleye

Rating: 4.81 stars
This is the recipe my dad has 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!

Flash Baked Walleye Fillets

A delightfully simple fish recipe.

Pecan-Crusted Walleye

Rating: 4.53 stars
A light crust for this delicate fish won't cover up the taste of the fish itself. Plus it is quick and easy.

Crispy Baked Walleye

Rating: 4.6 stars
Crispy breaded fish without frying! My husband only likes deep-fried fish, and he loves this. Feel free to use your favorite seasonings. You can also use tilapia or other white fish fillets.

Awesome Grilled Walleye (Scooby Snacks)

Rating: 3.43 stars
I got this recipe from a guy I fish with up north, I love them; they are absolutely great, and I can't get enough of them. We call them 'Scooby Snacks' and usually have them around the campfire. Be sure your foil is good and sealed. When done, it will be puffed up like a pillow! You can use any white, flaky fish in place of walleye fillets.

Canadian Walleye (Pickerel)

Rating: 4.22 stars
You can cook this classic Canadian shore lunch indoors all year round when you don't have the time or the luxury of getting out on the lake! Serve with lots of lemon wedges or vinegar.

Steamed Walleye (Pickerel) on the Grill

Rating: 4 stars
For the health conscious, this twist on the classic variation is definitely more acceptable. Tender and delish.

Walleye Cakes

Rating: 4.3 stars
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.

Herb-Crusted Walleye

Rating: 4.74 stars
This is a quick and easy dinner solution that is a big hit at my table. You can use perch, walleye, tilapia, and probably any other kind of fish you'd like. I find that everyone likes certain tastes, so feel free to spice it up however you like. I will sometimes add more of the ingredients on top of the fish before putting in the oven for more flavor.

Minnesota Walleye Cakes

A nice Minnesotan twist on crab cakes.

Tanner's Best Bacon Walleye

Rating: 4.63 stars
Incredible flavor combinations enhance the walleye. Bacon and onion with honey will make this a family favorite for you too! Quick and easy.

Sweet and Sour Christmas Fish Soup

Rating: 4.5 stars
I received a package of fresh Lake Winnipeg walleye as a Christmas gift and thought I would do something special with it. Although a quick pan fry is quite special, I thought I would try my new Christmas wok. Loved it!
