Recipe by Jill L. "Margaritta Lover"

My husband fishes often and I always try to come up with new ways to prepare what he catches. This is one of our all time favorites. I was told by family and friends it is fabulous!!! The lemon dill sauce recipe I am also submiting is a wonderful compliment. Hope you enjoy!

These were unbelievable. No kidding. I think I could eat them every single day. I pan fried mine in a little olive oil. I also used just a frozen perch for the Walleye.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb walleye, chopped
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crab
  • 14 cup melted butter
  • 2 -3 green onions, chopped
  • 14 cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 14 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 egg
  • 12 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 pinch Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 dash Dijon mustard
  • Lawry's Seasoned Salt
  • salt & pepper
  • 14 cup breadcrumbs, to roll cakes in


  1. Mix all, form into small patties(smaller for appetizers/larger for entree), roll in crumbs, put on a well greased cookie sheet. Bake in oven on top rack at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, flipping once, until golden on both sides.
  2. Alternative: Instead of baking, I have also greased a pan and browned the cakes on the top of the stove. Medium heat. Just cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
  3. Serve immediately with lemon dill sauce on the side.
