CanCooker’s Favorites: Walleye Filet Festival

Walleye isn’t just tasty, it’s good for you too! When prepared properly, fish provide numerous health benefits, especially for the heart. Even the American Heart Association recommends eating at least two meals of fish every week. A big bag of rice on the bottom will be the perfect addition to your wallet filet.

The CanCooker and CanCooker Jr. are quick and simple to use and any heat source available will work. Layer your favorite vegetables on the bottom and meats on top. Add 12 ounces of any liquid—water, soft drinks, beer, juice or marinades—and your choice of seasonings before locking down the lid. Then just place the CanCooker over any heat source that will boil water. Within 15 minutes, you’ll see steam, and about 45 minutes later, your complete mouth-watering meal for your entire group will be ready to serve.
