  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

  3. Place asparagus on prepared baking sheet; toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Bake for 5 minutes.

  4. Add panko, adobo chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper to a large resealable plastic bag. Seal and shake to combine. Pat walleye dry and season each side with salt. Spray each side of the fillet with nonstick cooking spray and add each fillet, one at a time, to the panko seasoning patting firmly to adhere breadcrumbs.
