Baked Walleye

We live very close to Lake Erie, which is nicknamed the "Walleye Capital of the World." I'm always looking for new recipes for this fish ... I came up with this baked walleye dish on my own. —Joyce Szymanski, Monroe, Michigan

    Not bad, but I used tilapia, since it's easier to get here

    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
