We really enjoyed this with roasted asparagus and garlic bread. Very quick and easy, but also worth serving to company. A nice change from deep fried for one of our favorite fish. (I also had to substitute parmesan for the romano and I don't think it hurt anything!) Thanks!

Five stars! We really liked this way to make walleye. Excellent taste, fast to prepare and cook. I skinned the fish first and used panko for the crumbs. Served it with steamed jasmine rice drzzled with extra lemon butter, and a fresh green salad. It was a great meal.
