I made some walleye "cakes" last night using a recipe that originally called for shrimp. Whipped up a corn and avacado salsa to top it off. mmmmm :)

Ditto! Post that recipe, ice fishing is right around the corner. Walleye are one of my favorite fish. We have them in most lakes.

We used to get Walleye at fish fries in Wisconsin it is really great fish. You can't get it out here though, you usually see scrod or cod in fries.

Looks great....

I agree with Wine & Swine, in the NJ/NY area you usually get Scrod or Cod at fish fries. I never has Walleye, if fact, I don't even know what a Walleye looks like.

Totally killer. Maybe a little black beans to compliment that corn/avocado salsa.

Actually you can catch some Walleye in Abilene at Fort Phantom lake. They stocked the lake with Walleye 15 years ago.

ok here's the recipe -

Spicy Shrimp Cakes:

1 lb medium shrimp, peeled an deveined. NOTE- I substituted 1 lb of walleye fillets. any flaky white fish will work probably.
cooking spray
1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
3 tablespoons mayo
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1.5 tspns hot sauce
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped.
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs divided.

1) cut up fillets into small pieces ( i used food processor but got them too "fine" and were kinda mushy.)
2) heat large nonstick skillet , coat pan with cooknig spray. add bell pepper and saute 3 mins. add garlic and saute for another minute. remove from heat and place mixture in large bowl. Add fish, green onions and next 6 ingrediants (through egg) stirring well. stir in cilantro and 1/4 cup panko.
3_)divide mixture into equal portions shaping each portion into 1/2" thick patty. dredge both sides of patties in remaining 1/2 cup panko ( i used more). Chill at least one hour.
4) heat pan and add cooking spray or oil ( i used peanut oil). Add patties to pan and cook 4 minutes or so on each side or until browned. Remove from pan, cover and keep warm. repeat procedure with remaining cakes.

Salsa:
1 cup frozen white corn, thawed
3/4 cup peeled avacodo , diced
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped jalopeno pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp salt.
Combine all ingredients, stir gently, Serve on walleye cakes.

Note, the mixture was kind of....not very "firm"...probably because i processed fish too fine. I may just try chopping fine by hand next time. also fish may have more natural moisture then shrimp..dunno. they fried up fine though :)
