Wash fish off in cold water, pat dry with a paper towel. Carefully remove any skin from walleye with a filet knife. Please be careful.
Turn the stove on to medium heat and heat cast iron pan.
Put solid coconut oil in the pan. After it melts, you may need to adjust how much. You want about 1/4 inch of melted oil. Do not let the oil smoke...this is too hot!
While the pan is slowly heating up. Place fish into the pancake mix and dust all sides.
Slowly insert dusted fish into the hot cast iron pan. The oil should sizzle.
When you see the outer edges of fish start to brown, about 2 minutes; flip the fish with the tongs gently and cook for another 90 seconds to 2 minutes.
Turn off the stove and transfer cooked walleye to a plate covered with a paper towel.
Salt the fish to your liking.
Eat within a few minutes.
