    Here are a few meals I've had at my house recently. I'm trying to find different ways of fixing walleye (and saugeye) without having to deep fry it, although I have to say the deep frier is still my favorite way of fixing it.

    Here is a pan full of walleye filets (before they went into the oven) that we soaked in milk, dipped in egg, rolled in a mix of panko bread crumbs & a coating called "baking miracle", and a bunch of spices. tasted pretty good, but we'll add more spice next time.

    here is what we simply call 'fish soup'. it's an offshoot of my wife's chicken soup. PM me if you want the recipe.

    this is some pan seared walleye, mixed into a serving of Knorr (formerly Lipton) Mushroom and Rice. quick and easy, probably my favorite (I love rice and mushrooms).
  2. Looks delicious.

    My new favorite way to prepare walleye & saugeye is boiled. If you like asian style cooking you'll love this one. It's quick and easy too.

    1 pkg fresh mushrooms - sliced
    1 can chicken broth
    1 can stewed tomatoes
    1 bell pepper sliced into strips
    1 sml pkg raw shrimp - peeled, deveined & thawed
    1 lb walleye fillets cut into 1/2" cubes
    1/2 cup white wine
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon Frank's hot sauce
    1/4 cup fresh cilantro - chopped
    4 cups hot cooked rice

    Heat mushrooms and broth to boiling in a 3 quart sauce pan.
    Stir in remaining ingredients except cilantro or rice.
    Return to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 7 minutes or until shrimp are pink & firm. Stir in cilantro right before serving. Serve in bowls over rice.

    fried is my favorite too,but i also like a change now and then.broiled,baked or steamed.though i'm not crazy about fish dishes with tomato,that soup looks good.i've been getting a taste for some chowder lately,and might have to thaw some crappie filets soon.used to make fish chowder when my kids were growing up(many years ago)and they loved it.kept a pot on top of the wood stove all day sometimes,so they could help themselves:)
  4. man that all looks good. what is this "baking miracle" stuff all about????
  5. EE - my dad makes a dish similar to the soup you included there. He also adds shrimp. Try that sometime.

    Rick, got your P.M., I'll give you a shout (or return your P.M. tonight)! There's some tomato juice in that soup, but no tomato sauce or tomato chunks.

    Terry, I'll give it a shot at some point. I've never tried boiled fish so I can't knock it.... it may end up a regular for me!

    Boatnut, Baking Miracle is just an ordinary, grocery shelf seasoning mix. I like to mix it 50/50 with other things (sometimes saltine crackers, sometimes Panko bread crumbs, etc.). I grind up the crackers/bread crumbs with a rolling pin so they are of the same consistency as the seasoning mix, then I mix it all up in a bowl.

    jc, I'll definitely try the shrimp added in.... one of my favorites and I never thought to add that in..... I bet this soup and shrimp will accentuate each other well.

    decided to try the fish soup.i made a couple minor modifications,but i must say,this is some good stuff.i'm not big on rice,so i cut it to 1 cup instead of 2.
    in place of the salsa,corn and beans,i found a black bean/white corn salsa at walmart.i did add some extra corn,since i wanted more than what was in the salsa.
    i also added 1/2 cup of small scallops.
    tossed in a few shakes of old bay and mrs. dash seasoning.
