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

Directions

  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.

Hint - Pecan meal is just finely ground pecans. Or you can take chopped pecans, put into a zippy bag and crush them with a rolling pin. You just don't want big pieces. When I created this recipe, the idea was to find a flavorful, but light crust for the delicate fish.

I made this tonight and it was wonderful! I did find a pecan panko breading mix at Whole Foods so I didn't have to add much seasoning but the fish cooked perfectly. Served with some risotto and fresh advocado/tomatoes. Super quick and easy summer week night dish.
