Bacon wrapped walleye

Recommended Posts

I had some walleye fillets thats were a bit thick to fry in the skillet.

From a suggestion from another FMer, I cut the fillets up into smaller pieces and wrapped them in bacon and stuck tooth picks in them. I place them on the grill until the bacon was starting to get crispy. I used the thicker bacon but I believe the regular bacon would work better.

One very good meal of eye. This would also work well for Hor- dourves for a party.

Sounds good Harvey Lee! I bet any kind of fish would taste good this way as long as the fillets were thick enough to hold up intil the bacon got done!

The walleye fillet held up just fine. I was suprised that the walleye was still very moist after the bacon got done.

They sure are good!

Did a batch up Sunday night that way with the fish cubes dusted with a bit of cajun seasoning before being wrapped in bacon. Make sure to soak you toothpicks in water for a couple of hours to keep them from totally burning.

Great , I was looking for something new tonight for walleye.

Made these up last night on the grill and they were incredible. I even took some leftovers to lunch today and still very good.

Thanks for the recipe.

I do them on kabob skewers, they are easier to handle than tooth picks. Try basting them lightly with barbecue sauce while grilling them with wrapped in bacon. It even gets those people that are non-fish-eaters to enjoy some walleye. I usually clean the walleye with the "zipper" method so the fillet is split into a top and bottom half, so i use the thicker, top half, to cube and make kabobs and then take the thinner belly side of the fillet and wrap in foil with butter.

If you end up with a fillet too big to fry it can be butterflied - just like shrimp. Separate the belly meat from the backstrap and butterfly the backstrap. If you need to butterly the belly, the fish should be at the taxidermist.

I learned about this method from Borch so I cannot take the credit.

Well I learned it from Paul Waldowski.....

So we're just sharing. wink

Just pulled some LOTW walleye from March out of the freezer. Wrapped it some bacon made by a friend. Dusted the fish in a little Tony Chachre cajun seasoning.

Took some home grown green beans and wrapped them in foil with garlic, butter and sea salt.

FANTASTIC!

The kids were going banannas at how good it was.

It does make it good. I'll have to try the BBQ sauce on it. I going to have to try the Kabob's though, might make it easier to grill up.

    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Careful, man.  Any such suggestions get criticized pretty heavily.  I came here around this time last year and posted something similar, and I hadn't been on this forum for quite some time.  My question was met by one of the mods with mock & ridicule.  But he thought that was okay as long as he put a smiley face or an lol after every sentence.  Funny, funny guy.  No wonder it's a ghost town around here.  Too bad, this was a must-read destination back in the day.
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
