I really liked this recipe and will make again.
I have made this recipe many, many times and it is a very good recipe. The only thing that I change up in it is that I use seasoning salt instead of plain salt. This is definitely my "go to" recipe for preparing fish! We love it!
Very nice flavor
I never have a chance to have walleye (I wish I did) but I think this recipe will go well with Pike or white perch. Going to try it the next time I get some. In the mean time I am going to try Haddock. Sounds good.
I have been eating this recipe since I was a girl. My dad was the fish cook in the family and he used potato flakes for the coating with the addition of various herb, to change up the flavor occasionaly. These days there are so many different flavors of potato flakes, it make it easy to customize this dish. But walleye really is the best fish to use.
