Recipe Notes

Next to Dad’s margarita’s, the walleye is probably his next requested recipe. But Dad is and has always been such a great fisherman that this has been a treat for our family every summer. I miss being a little kid, and having this being a fairly frequent dinner, or even enjoying the fish lakeside with my cousins.
