Walleye Fishing Is Awesome, But Walleye Eating Is Better
There are many types of fish out there, and most are edible if cooked right. I must say fresh Walleye fillets are at the top of the list when it comes to my favorite fish. Hanging with Chubby (my dad) in Kettle Falls means two things, breakfast at the galleria and fishing, not a bad way to spend a couple days. There are many ways to catch walleye, and many places to fish for them, but once you eat one for dinner, you’ll be hooked. Here is one of my favorite ways to cook then eat walleye. The best part of this recipe is there is no real measuring, just a sprinkle here, and a dab of this there, and bingo you’re eating like a king. Here we go.
Take a bowl, size depends on the number of fillets you have. Add one can of beer (your choice)
Add lemon juice, I use all the juice from one of those plastic lemon containers.
Add garlic salt, Lawyr’s seasoning salt, and if you have some, the juice from a jar of the hot pickled vegetables is a nice touch. Add as much of above items as you see fit.
Pour in a little olive oil and mix it all together, add walleye fillets and put in the fridge for about a half an hour. I try to rotate the fillets about every ten minutes or so. You can leave in fridge for a longer period of time if you wish, again, there is no right or wrong way to use this recipe.
Cover the bottom of the frying pan with olive oil, heat, and drop in fillets. Cook until golden brown on both sides. Add more olive oil if needed, depending on the amount of fillets.
Serve with fried potatoes and green beans, and sweet tea. That’s how I do it, give it a whirl.
