Years ago, when I realized that I
liked to eat fish as much as I liked to catch them, I also
realized that just dipping a fillet into some sort of batter and frying
it was going to get boring after a while -- especially if I were going
to eat fish on a fairly regular basis. And so began the quest of
trying to determine just how many ways a walleye could be successfully
prepared... and which one would lend itself to any particular occasion
There were a lot of recipes that were discovered and
attempted; much experimentation took place, and lots of sources were
consulted. The walleyes were followed by blue gills, then northern
pike, bass, crappy, perch and even smelt. I even substituted salt
water varieties for my freshwater choices, and suddenly a whole new
world opened up.
Of course there were successes... and even a few
failures along the way (I don't think I'll share the failures with
you!) What you will find here are some of my favorites -- the
tried and true recipes that have always been greeted with smiles and
compliments. I promise that they are not difficult to prepare.
And even though I still appreciate a good ol' fish fry, I also promise
that some of these may just open your eyes to some different -- and very
tasty -- ways to enjoy your favorite catch!
