To make baked walleye fish with herbs, begin by preheating an oven to 500 degrees F. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter, and pour it into the bottom of a large baking dish. Place four 4-ounce walleye fillets cut into pieces with their skin sides facing down in the butter. Sprinkle the fish with 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon dried basil before baking for five to seven minutes in the preheated oven. This recipe makes four servings.
To make crispy baked walleye with a breadcrumb and Parmesan coating, begin by beating 2 eggs and 1 tablespoon of water in a bowl. Set this bowl aside, and combine 1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs, 1/3 cup instant mashed potato flakes, 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese and 1 teaspoon seasoned salt in a second bowl. Dip four 4-ounce fillets of walleye into the egg mixture and then into the breadcrumb mixture. Place them on a greased baking sheet.
Place the fish in an oven preheated to 450 degrees F, and bake it for 15 to 20 minutes or until the fish is opaque and flakes apart easily with a fork. This recipe takes about 25 minutes to prepare and makes enough to serve four people.
