Provided by Blond Ambition Kitchen, we have the perfect fried walleye recipe complete with sides, apps, and sauce!

- 12 Ounces of Beer (Schlitz)
Heat a sauce pan over medium with some olive oil, enough to coat the bottom. Add the shallot and green onion bottom, season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened and fragrant. Add in the Beer and bring it to a boil for a coupled minutes. Lower the heat to low medium and slowly incorporate the cream cheese. Once the cream cheese is totally melted add in both cheddars slowly, until combined. Season the sauce with salt and pepper and transfer to a serving dish.

Beer Battered Fried Walleye Recipe:

Place the flour and Old Bay into a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the beer and 1/4 cup water and whisk to make a smooth batter.
