Walleye is like whitefish meets perch. It has more flavor than whitefish and is low in weight watcher points.
Because this is 8 points (a usual meal size), I eat with a salad or some fruit to keep it low. Life is a tradeoff ....and so is food! Id rather have one great dish in points than make 2 other side dishes and have to eat less fish or make it crummy.

Weight watcher note: Not too many diets like carbs...sad because they're so good. But, everything in moderation. Make sure you're not eating carbs for every meal or even many per day. Also, if you have 10 points, you're going to need to make the next meal fruit/salad/soup- not creamy oriented. Also big note: if a vegetable stuffing has this many points, it basically says that sausage and cheese stuffings are going to be way past point limits.
Vegetarian Note: try to make one meal/day vegetarian. Helps your health (many proven diet tests) and the animals. We don't need to GORGE on meats to go through as many animals as we do! BTW, the definition here for vegetarian means its ok to eat eggs/milk. Myself, I figure these are products that have to be released for the health of the animal!
