Broiled Walleye Fillets

Broiled Walleye Fillets

It's that time of year again. My good friend George is out on Lake Chautauqua in Western New York fishing for walleye. It's February but that doesn't stop George he's out there on the ice fishing away.

And, that's always good for me because George always shares his good fortune of fishing with me. Just the other day he gave me these fresh walleye fillets.

The last time I beer battered and fried the walleye fillets. This time I decided to broil them. And, oh my gosh were they delicious.

Broiled Walleye Fillets:

First I lined a cookie sheet with tin foil and sprayed it with Pam Non-Stick Spray.  Next, I placed the fresh walleye on the cookie sheet and brushed with melted butter.

I seasoned the fillets with the following Penzeys Spices:

2 tablespoons Italian Herb Mix
2 tablespoons Roasted Garlic
2 tablespoons Chesapeake Bay Seafood Seasoning
2 tablespoons Smoked Paprika
1 tablespoon Cajun Seasoning
1/2 tablespoon Salt and Pepper

I had four nice walleye fillets the amounts are approximately what I used. I just seasoned to my liking.

I placed the cookie sheet on the highest rack in the oven, about 6 inches away from the burner. Set the oven to broil. I broiled the fillets about 7 minutes per side. Until they flacked apart with a fork.

I squeezed the juice of one whole lemon over the broiled walleye as soon as they came out of the broiler and served.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

We always keep Penzeys Seasonings on hand. We love the fresh flavor of each and every one of them. 


  1. You know, I've heard the name Walleye, but never knew what they were. Fish in NY, eh? When I was a kid, I didn't like fish. But, I'm 70. I enjoy most fish. Fresh, thick, sauteed, fried, broiled. No ketchup, though. Sometimes Tartar sauce. Sometimes plain.

    1. I too like fish. The only fish I'm not fond of is salmon. I like a very mild fish. Walleye is very mild fish. Popular in the great lakes, fresh water rivers and lakes. No ketchup for me just some fresh squeezed lemon and sometimes Tartar sauce. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I love fish and seafood. I don't think I have ever had Walleye, but would love to try it, especially fixed this way. It looks delicious!
