Walleye Basil Stir Fry

Photos and recipe by Keane Amdahl

From the cookbook Lake Fish: Modern Cooking with Freshwater Fish by Keane Amdahl, this dish has a lot of flexibility. Follow Keane’s suggestions of broccoli, carrots, pea pods and some thinly sliced red onion, or feel free to experiment. When it all comes together with the basil, ginger, garlic, and stir-fry sauce, you’re going to have yourself a winning dish. Note that the flaky nature of the walleye means the fish will break into smaller pieces during the cooking process.

Thanks to honey in the dressing, there is a touch of sweetness that underscores this natural element that already exists in the flavor of the walleye, and the fresh lemon makes it all pop.
