This recipe is so easy and quick to put together. The hardest part is smelling the awesome aroma of the fish baking for 1 and a half hours while your mouth waters.

Pack the inside of the Northern with the stuffing.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour and a half

I dreamt about this recipe for a year before I actually tried it since when I do get a little time to get out fishing which is not very often I am either looking for walleye for supper or casting giant lures looking for gators. Finally this winter I caught a couple of 25 inch Northerns through the ice to try this recipe. It’s a variation of Chicken Kiev, just with a different meat.
Recipe is for 2 people
In a bowl mix softened butter, Garlic, Parsley and Pepper.
Lay out northern fillet with the side you took the skin off down.
In the crevice that you removed the y-bones pack the butter mixture in.
Roll up the fillet length wise so you have a long roll.
Cut roll in three pieces and coat each piece in the flour.
Mix eggs and hot sauce and coat the pieces in that
Mix bread crumbs, corn flake crumbs, garlic salt and cayenne and then dip the pieces in that, make sure all the pieces are well coated
Fry pieces, making sure to turn frequently to brown them evenly
Once the pieces are browned evenly they will not be cooked throughout and will need to be placed in a pre heated 350 oven for about 15-20 mins.
Let cool for about 10 mins before you eat.
