Honey-Fried Walleye

We fish on most summer weekends, so we have lots of fresh fillets. Everyone who tries this crisp, golden fish loves it. It's one of my husband's favorite walleye recipes, and I never have leftovers. Honey gives the coating a deliciously different twist. —Sharon Collis, Colona, Illinois
