fried walleye pike

- 4 walleye fillets
-  ½ cup all-purpose flour
-  ½ tsp garlic powder
 - ½ tsp ground black pepper
-  1 pinch salt (Optional)
-  2 eggs, beaten
 - 2 cups crushed saltine crackers
 - vegetable oil for frying
-  1 lemon, cut into wedges

-  Combine flour, garlic powder, pepper, and salt in a shallow bowl. Place beaten eggs in a separate shallow bowl. Place cracker crumbs onto a plate.
-  Heat oil in a deep fryer or large cast iron skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Dip fillets into flour mixture, then dip in beaten egg, and then coat evenly with cracker crumbs; set fillets aside on a plate. Carefully lower 2 fillets into hot oil using tongs; cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side, ensuring the fish reaches 165 degrees F internally. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; repeat with remaining fillets. Serve with lemon wedges.
