This recipe has become a family favorite. It's the only one I use when fresh pickerel is on the menu. Everyone who tries it, even the skeptics who believe they have the best walleye recipe, admit it's truly delicious.

I've been using this recipe for years. Excellent. People who "won't touch fish" love it.

I've been using this recipe for many years now. We catch a lot of crappie in the south and it's wonderful with this recipe. Also have tried using other types of fish and it's always a hit!

My grandma used to fry walleye and northern pike with a very similar recipe. Yummy! Brings back fond memories of going to the cabin & fishing each summer.
