Broiled Walleye Fillets


There’s no better way to cook fish that this simple Broiled Walleye Fillets recipe. Walleye is a freshwater fish (it’s also called yellow pike) and if you’re lucky enough to have a fisherman friend, perhaps they can hook one for you! Otherwise, you can try the fish counter and if they don’t have walleye, another freshwater fish will work great, like yellow perch or white bass.

This grilled walleye recipe is great for an outdoor grill but it works perfectly under the broiler, which is what I’m using here. As you can see, there are no bells or whistles to this recipe – just butter, seasoning and salt, so the flavor of the walleye can really stand out. Walleye have a sweet flavor and when cooked just right, it’s succulent, soft and flaky, utterly delicious!

So, how to make Broiled Walleye Fillets?

Steps to make Broiled Walleye Fillets


Heat the broiler and prepare foil wraps


Preheat the broiler to medium-high. Cut two large squares of aluminum foil; one square should be enough to lay all the fillets in comfortably with a couple of inches spare around the edges.


Prepare the fillets


Lay the fish fillets, skin-side down, in the center of one of the foil squares. Brush the fillets with the melted butter and sprinkle the seasoning and salt over the top.


Make the foil parcel


Lay the second square of foil over the top and fold the edges of the bottom square up and over. Fold again so that you have a leak-proof parcel.


Cook the fillets


Place the parcel in the broiler. Cook for about 7 minutes, turn the parcel over and cook for another 7 minutes until the fish is soft and flaky.


Serving Broiled Walleye Fillets


Serve the fillets with the buttery juices drizzled over the top.
