walleye piccata

a quick, healthy and absolutely delicious fish dinner [or lunch!] you can use any type of white fish that you have or are able to obtain; walleye, perch, halibut, etc. of course depending on the type, the cooking times might change. I was lucky enough to use my dad's freshly caught walleye for this dish.

you could either serve the fish as the meat portion of a meal alongside a salad and crusty bread or over a bed of buttered noodles topped with freshly chopped parsley, freshly grated parmesan, salt and pepper.
