  • 6 Walleye fillets
  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cups flour
  • 1 cup Italian style bread crumbs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika

For Frying

  • 4 Tablespoons oil


  • Lightly beat eggs in a dish
    2 eggs
  • In another dish combine flour, bread crumbs and seasoning
    ¾ cups flour, 1 cup Italian style bread crumbs, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon onion powder, ½ teaspoon paprika
  • Dip fish in egg and then in flour mixture. Shake off any excess flour.
    6 Walleye fillets
  • Add a couple of tablespoons of oil to a pan and heat pan over medium heat.
    4 Tablespoons oil
  • When pan is hot, add 3-4 fillets to pan. Cook 3 minutes per side so each side is nicely browned. 
  • Remove fish from pan and place on a baking sheet lined with a baking rack. Place cooked fish in a 250° oven while you cook remaining fish. 
  • Wipe out pan and add additional oil. Repeat process with remaining fish. 



I use canola or vegetable oil for frying.
May substitute white fish fillets for walleye.
