  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Beat the eggs and water together in a bowl until smooth; set aside. Combine the bread crumbs, potato flakes, and Parmesan cheese in a separate bowl with the seasoned salt until evenly mixed. Dip the walleye fillets into the beaten egg, then press into the bread crumb mixture. Place onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish is opaque in the center and flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.

This was very good. I made as is, but would cut back on the salt next time as I am a low sodium eater. Next time I make this I would like to try putting the greased cookie sheet in the oven for a few minutes to get it hot and the bottom more crispy. Yummy!

I thought it tasted more like a walleye casserole. I just didn't think the flavor meshed and I was very disappointed. My husband was also not impressed.

LOVE THIS. We went to the store to find what fish looked best that day. It was walleye (which I had never made before). When I came back home with my visiting friend I found this recipe and made it while he did some chores for me. I used panko breadcrumbs. It was great! Thanks for making me look like a pro on the spot!

GREAT RECIPE! I wanted to find a "baked" recipe for walleye but with breading and a "fried" taste. This was really good. I had tripled the amount of Walleye (3 lbs. of 2 large filets). I cut each filet into 6 filets which totaled 12. I used the same amount of eggs and water (2 eggs & 1 tbs. of water) which was plenty! I doubled the bread crumbs (Panko is all I use), instant mashed potatoes, parmesan cheese (I used Parmesan & Romano) and the same amount of seasoned salt (1 tsp.) which was plenty for us. I whipped the eggs and water in a bowl, mixed all the dry ingredients in a larger bowl, dipped fish in egg/water mixture then dipped in bread crumb mixture. Realized I still had plenty of egg & bread crumb mixture left so I dipped the coated fish filets again in egg then bread crumb mixture until gone. I was able to double coat 2/3 of my filets. Placed filets on a prepared (Pam sprayed) pizza pan with holes, melted approx. 2 tbs. of butter and added a handful of fresh parsley and drizzled over the top of each filet (my preference). Baked in 450 degree pre-heated oven for 20 minutes (a little underdone which we like) OMG DELISH! My family ages 8 to 54 loved this recipe. The filets that were not "double coated" were really good, but the filets that were "double coated" were GREAT! I always refrigerate breaded fish at least 1/2 hour before baking/frying. I served with tossed salad, asparagus, and teriyaki rice. What a GREAT MEAL!~THANK YOU so much for this recipe!! WE LOVED

My husband is a bit of a picky eater and he doesn't usually rate my cooking as exceptional but I made this for the first time tonight and he LOVED it! I didn't modify anything and I made my own bread crumbs out of 1 slice of wheat bread. It looked and tasted gourmet! I will definitely use this recipe again when I cook up the rest of the walleye we caught in Minnesota last year.

I was out of instant mashed potatoes so I had to improvise for some flavor. I added a little bit of dill, paprika and garlic salt to the breading and put a little bit of lemon juice on each filet before baking. They turned out great. Hope to try the genuine recipe next time. I'll be sure to check my cupboard BEFORE thawing out the walleye!

This recipe was quick, easy and delicious....healthier too. My husband didn't even realize until after dinner that we didn't have tartar sauce with the fish--it was that good :)
