Fried Walleye (Recipe)


Permitted use provided by:


  • 8 walleye fillets
  • 2/3 cup canola oil for frying
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 TBS honey
  • 2 cups buttery crackers finely crushed in a blender
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper


Heat canola oil in a heavy skillet to 375 degrees.

In a bowl, add the eggs, honey, salt, garlic and onion powders and pepper; whisk until combined.

In a resealable bag, add the crushed crackers and flour - shake to mix and then pour into a shallow bowl or plate. When the oil is hot, place each fillet in the egg mixture and then roll in the cracker mixture; slowly lower into the hot oil. Fry until each fillet is dark golden brown, flip over and cook the other side.

Place fillets on paper towels to drain and season with salt and pepper. I have more than just to learn how to cook walleye. I have more than this page teaching you how to cook walleye - check out the links below.
