  • 1 walleye fillets (about 12 ounces), cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 4 bacon strips
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2 submarine buns, split
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Tomato slices


  1. Sprinkle fillet with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Coat with cornmeal and set aside. In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings.
  2. In the same skillet, cook fillet in reserved drippings for about 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Meanwhile, butter cut sides of buns. Place buttered side up on a baking sheet. Toast under broiler for about 1 minute or until golden brown. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and garlic; spread on buns. Top with lettuce, tomato slices and fish.
