This isn't as much a recipe, but if one is wondering how it is to cook up some smallies, if done right, you cannot tell them from walleye! I just use any interesting white fish recipe--say for halibut even. The trick is to soak the fish in milk (you can use salt solution, but I like the milk soak better). With the lake being overtaken by smallies, maybe if we kept more and ate them, it would help the problem. We just had some almond encrusted smallies a couple of nights ago and will certainly start harvesting more!
