Delicious.  I used fresh Walleye from Erie; even though I forgot to add the celery.  I substituted fresh garlic and parsley for powdered or dried.  I also did not have V8 juice so I substitued tomato sauce with equal parts of water and included a bit of lemon thyme.  I will undoubtedly be using this recipe again."

"My husband thought it was a winner. It was excellent. I did not have V8 so used tomato juice instead will make it again"
