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

  1. Beat the egg with the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt until evenly mixed. Spread the pecan meal into a shallow dish. Dip the walleye fillets into the egg mixture, then press into the pecan flour.
  2. Heat the butter and vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place the walleye fillets into the pan. Cook until golden brown on both sides and the fish flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Delicious! One of my new favorites. We call it Pickerel up in Canada. I would make my own pecan meal next time as the store bought one is a bit too fine and I think this would be nice with a lit...

Yummy! We used Swai fish, but can't wait to try it with fresh-caught walleye. Very quick and easy. The whole family enjoyed it (even picky young kids)!
