Baked Walleye Recipes

Walleye fishing is over for the season and you have a freezer stocked with those tasty morsels. So how are you going to cook them? Frying is smelly, time consuming, messy and fattening. On top of that your wife won’t be happy if you fry them in the kitchen. Grilling is out of the question for those of us living in the north where most of the walleye are caught. So what does that leave us with? Baking! Baked walleye recipes are as numerous as the fish they bake.

I can hear some of you die hard walleye deep fryers saying no way will they be as good. I thought the same thing until my son introduced me to some fine baked walleye.

The question is do you go exotic with lots of breading and spices or simple with a minimum of ingredients. My choice is simple. The following is a quick and easy method of preparing baked walleye. You don’t have to be a gourmet cook or even a good cook. It is so simple that even I can do it.

Fresh walleye is the best but fresh frozen walleye is a close second. I start with giving the walleye plenty of time to completely thaw then I drain them well and pat dry to remove most of the water. I will list the ingredients then the preparation method.

4 walleye fillets

6-9 tablespoons melted butter ( I usually melt a little extra for basting at the end )

2 lemon halves

2-3 tablespoons finely chopped onions

One third to one half cup sliced mushrooms

Salt and pepper

Dip the fish in the melted butter

Transfer to a shallow baking dish where you will squeeze on the lemon juice (both sides and to taste) and salt and pepper to taste

Place onions and mushrooms on top of the fillets

Spoon most of the remaining melted butter over the top leaving just a little for basting at the end (Basting at the end is optional)

Insert into preheated oven at 350 degrees for approximately 15 minutes

Do not overcook. when the fillets flake easily they are done

Remove from oven and serve with potatoes of choice or rice of choice. I like potatoes that have been cut into ½” or so cubes, drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt and cooked in a 400 degree oven. I usually do these in our toaster oven starting them about 20 minutes before the fish. If I’m having rice I prefer wild rice. It’s easy to make and will stay warm in the pan while you are preparing the fish. Add a fresh salad and you have a very delicious meal

Looks really good John. Don't have any Walleye here in Nova Scotia, but I am sure the method will work on some of the Haddock or other local fish.

This recipe is really easy and it's hard to mess it up. The onions, mushrooms, salt and pepper and lemon are to taste so if you don't overcook it everything will be tasty

You're right Ty. Most people overcook fish in general. I really learned how to cook fish while working and living in Hawaii. It' was rare to get overcooked fish there.

Yeah people in the islands know how to do it. I live in the Philippines and they know how to make it here too but they don't bake it much here.
