When it comes to eating fish, you just can’t beat walleye! It has a light, delicate flavor that allows you
to serve it in lots of ways. But today I have something for you that is less a
recipe than a terrific serving suggestion: walleye tidbits! Clean and wash the walleye fillets. Use a very sharp knife
and cut across the width of the filet, shaving extremely thin slices from the fish. Combine corn meal, salt and pepper in a bag, add walleye tidbits and shake. Repeat as needed until all the pieces have been coated. Fry the fish in hot peanut oil until golden brown,
then drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt. One tip: if you use oil that’s been “seasoned”
by being used to fry something else, like french fries, the fish will achieve that perfect golden-brown color much more quickly. These small, crisp tidbits are like eating chips
or popcorn… no one can get enough. You can serve them as an appetizer, but we
found that tidbits were so popular they quickly became the main course!
