#50 Eating Walleye

On July 10, while in Minneapolis we went out to dinner and found walleye on the menu. Walleye? What a funny name. It didn’t sound that good. Kind of like Muskie or Crappie. But if it is on the menu then maybe it is good. I had to try it. It was real good. The taste and texture reminded me of eating Halibut, a very meaty white fish.

I later found out that Walleye is a very popular fish in Minnesota. In fact it is the Minnesota state fish. The funny name is derived from the fact that the fish’s eyes point outwards as if it is looking at the walls instead of forward.
