If you, or somebody you know, have been successful in any recent fishing trips, I bet you’re wondering how to get creative with preparing it.  Let’s start with walleye.  That is some good-eating fish there.  Why not try sweetening it up with some honey?  I just found a “Honey-Fried Walleye Recipe” at tasteofhome.com that makes me want to play hookey, just like the Captain did–(click HERE to read about that) and snag some walleye.

It only takes a total of 15 minutes, from start to finish, to prepare this dish!  It feeds 4-6 people, and if you have more mouths to feed than that, double it up!  They suggest enjoying your Honey-Fried Walleye with a “light-bodied white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio.



  • In a shallow bowl, beat egg and honey. In another bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, flour, salt and pepper. Dip fillets into egg mixture, then coat with crumb mixture.
  • In a large skillet, heat 1/4 in. of oil; fry fish over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Drizzle with honey. Yield: 4-6 servings.
