  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.

Coating was awful. I will stick with original chicken shake and bake, which is what I use on Perch.

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)!

Ugh. I ground the pecans and they became a clumpy sticky mess that didn't stick to the fish. One of the reviewers suggested adding flour, which I can't have so I will try adding almond flour to ...
