Honey Walleye

Our state is known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, so fishing is a favorite hobby here. This recipe is my quick way to prepare all the fresh walleye hooked by the anglers in my family. —Kitty McCue, St. Louis Park, Minnesota


  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 cups crushed Ritz crackers (about 45 to 50)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 pounds walleye fillets
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup canola oil
  • Optional: Minced fresh parsley and lemon wedges



  1. In a shallow bowl, beat egg; add honey. In a shallow dish, combine crackers and salt. Dip fish in egg mixture, then in cracker mixture; turn until coated.
  2. In a cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook fillets in oil over medium heat until golden and fish flakes easily with a fork, 3-5 minutes on each side. If desired, top with parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
