“A light crust for this delicate fish won't cover up the taste of the fish itself. Plus it is quick and easy.” - by annlha
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- 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.
- 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.

Next time, I will add flour to the mix and I think that will help prevent this problem and help the breading to not clump on the fish. This recipe had nice flavor and walleye is a meaty fish, so my husband didn't have as much a problem with it as he sometimes does with other kinds of fish."
