« on: October 10, 2015, 04:09:46 PM »
on average a 14 oz. walleye, boned, cleaned, skinned, cut into cubes, after boned
6 oz. shrimp, divined
cut down each side of center of fillet to remove bones, discard.   In a food processor,
pulse to coarsely chop the shrimp and walleye fillet.
In a medium bowl, combine thoroughly, these ingredients below:
1 large egg, beaten slightly
1 tbsp. mayonnaise
2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp black ground pepper
1/2 tsp curry powder
2-3 drops hot sauce
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
3/4 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp salt
Add to chopped fish.
3-6 tbsp. dry bread crumbs added to fish mixture.
or more if needed to form patties
make patties by forming 2-3 tbsp. mixture into a thinner patty, by putting
1-2 cups additional dry bread crumbs or panko crumbs, preferred- onto
a dinner plate to move patty into after it is formed.  Using hands to
form patty.  continue until done.
Put patties onto lined cookie sheet and refrigerate for an hour. 
You can freeze unused patties on sheet pan and put into freezer bags for
future meals.  Frozen patties do not need to be thawed before using.
To serve:  fry in heated oil on both sides about 8 minutes, until crisp on outside.
 Horseradish tartar sauce
1 c. sour cream
1 tbsp. fresh dill weed or dried to taste
2 tsp prepared horseradish 
salt to taste
In a small bowl combine all and refrigerate for an hour, to serve on patties.
if using frozen patties; prepare horseradish sauce the day of frying them

Yes My husband fishes and I have some fish in the freezer right now. There are only two of us so I'll try halving the recipe. We have mostly trout and bass but they could probably be substituted. Not many walleye in our lakes. When I lived in Ohio they were plentiful. My brother is an avid fisherman and we trade recipes so I'll forward this one on to him as well. Thanks

That sounds delicious.
I haven't fished in years. It's so expensive to get a license anymore and there are so many regulations, I can't keep up.

I wish my husband would realize the expense of it; plus his many other hobbies.  Everyone ask for fish and think those fish come free.  Don't think of bait, gas, use of equipment, cost of equipment.
Fish is too light of a meal for me; so once a week it enough.  but do like this recipe
