Reviews for Crunchy-Coated Walleye
"Tasty recipe with all the needed ingredients right in my kitchen. Nice crunch to coating."
"The potato flakes added a really crunchy texture to the light and flaky fish. This recipe was easy to make and the seasoning added flavor without overpowering the fish."
"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!"
