Recipe For Success
The block party was tonight, I got to meet the neighbors, and even weaseled a few house tours out of the deal. (Must keep up with the neighbors, musn't I?) For the pot luck I brought my take on breaded walleye ala Cafe Brenda. It was a smash hit, and so, in the interests of fairness, I will share it with you:
2 lb walleye fillets, cut up
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 cup corn meal
1 cup ground almonds
1 peel of large lemon, grated or gound in a blender
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon coarse ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon fine ground cayenne (red) pepper
1/2 lb unsalted butter (clarified)
Egg and milk for coating fillets
Roll fillets in egg and milk then place in large ziplock bag with mixed dry ingredients and shake.
Fry in clarified butter (shortening is OK but not as tasty) until just crispy -don't overcook it!
Good eating to you from Chef Batty.
