Almond-Cracker Walleye

Monahan's Seafood Market | Fresh Whole Fish, Fillets, Shellfish, Recipes, Catering & Lunch Counter-Ann Arbor, Michigan

1 lb. walleye fillet (cut into two portions)
Ritz crackers
sliced almonds (lightly toasted)
buttermilk or an egg
canola oil

Dip walleye fillets into either buttermilk or an egg wash, then dredge through a mixture of crushed Ritz crackers and sliced, toasted almonds.

Pan sauté for about 4-5 minutes per side in a hot skillet with canola oil (make the oil nice and hot before adding the fillet to the pan). Fish should be golden brown on the outside.

If you prefer to do this in the oven, preheat to 500°. Heat a skillet on top of the stove with just a little coating of canola oil, add the fish (skin side down) for a moment or two, then put the skillet in the oven. Cook for about 8-10 minutes until fish is golden brown and the fillet is opaque in the center. If you would prefer to use an insta-read thermometer rather than cut into the fish, internal temperature should be just about 125°.
