I can say I never have baked any of my Walleye catches in 66 years, always deep fried. Well today I tried something different. I combined two recipes into one. I used to cover one side of the walleye with cream cheese and roll it up then stick it with tooth picks to stop it from unrolling, then deep fried. Today I just used a egg wash with a package of Kraft Shake n bake with some added spices. Coated one fillet and layed onto the covered rack and then added a second over top. So we now have two walleye fillets with cream cheese in the middle with no tooth picks to worry about on a baking sheet. Put them into my air fryer to back at 450* F for 20 minutes. Came out very tender and juicy. Very tasty for sure.
Got the idea from this recipe. Use what ever part of it that makes it work for you.

I love walleye and that looks fantastic. Is there any left because I’ll eat it cold too if I have to. Nice work.

Steamed, broiled, fried, or baked is always good for walleye.
Great meal.
I have never had it rolled around cream cheese or served with any cheese. Hmm!
