This is a simple walleye recipe from a guest which makes a nice change from a heavier beer batter:

Of course a chef such as myself would never be caught dead with a measuring spoon so use the following measurments as a guideline.

Crispy-Potato Walleye

1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 eggs
lemon cut into wedges
walleye or pike fillets
1 1/2 cups instant mashed potato flakes
1/3 cup vegetable oil or lard

In a shallow bowl, combine flour, paprika, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder. In another bowl, beat the eggs.

Dip both sides of fillets in flour mixture
Dip fillets in eggs
Then coat with potato flakes.

In a large skillet, fry fillets in oil at med high temp on each side until a fork easily pushes through the fish and coating is crispy. Garnish with lemon wedge.

Serve with baked beans, salad and corn.

A little tartar sauce, lemon or maple ginger sauce goes well with the fish.
