Looking for Walleye on the grill recipe

12 posts in this topic

A friend is getting married with a very small ceremony and I'm the cookie amoung other things. We are all eating picnic style(burgers, brats, etc) except the minister who wants walleye.

Anybody got any suggestions for walleye on the grill, it has no skin on so it would probably be done in foil.

Any help would be appreciated.

Coat tinfoil with butter and olive oil. Season fillet with Salt, Pepper and Old Bay. Put a couple pats of butter on top and close tinfoil. Cook on medium heat about 5 to 7 minutes. Open the foil the last minute to let out steam and brown the fillet.

I saw one the other day that was with salmon, but was thinking walleye would be just fine. Took a filet, brushed with butter and coated with some cajun seasonings and put in (on)foil. On top of the walleye, prior to sealing the foil, he put some uncooked crab meat, then finished it off with shrimp on top of the crab. More butter on top of the shrimp, and crab I believe plus more cajun seasoning. Finished sealing the foil and threw on the grill. Three or so minutes a side??? Looked pretty tasty.

Walleye in foil on the grill is easy, fast, and healthy. You can make it as simple as butter and seasoning salt.

Get a basket like you'd use to grill and flip 9 hamburgers at once. Take walleye fillets and brush with melted butter and sprinkle with Cajun seasoning (just a little). Place on grill flip cage with fillets once grill other side and serve.

I use jerkbait's method very often a couple of things I would add would be a couple of slice's of lemon and some Italain Dressing.

You can add about any thing you like one of my kids likes to put orange slices on hers.

The flip cage is nice because it'll make it quicker to flip them over but it isn't necessary.

Season the fillets as desired (cajun, season salt, garlic powder, onion powder, dried lemon, salt, pepper, whatever) and lay them directly on the hot grill for about a minute per side or until done.

If you use the tinfoil method and add some butter on top (to your liking), just about any spice will taste good. Lowry's Seasoned Salt is always good, cajun seasonings, lemon pepper, dill, etc. The spice combinations are endless. The best thing to do is try putting your favorite spice on there and try it a few times before hand.

lay down lemon slices 1/4" thick enough to hold the fillet off the grill and close the lid and let it cook for 7-10 min on med, if you like lemon on your fish....yummy

My vote goes to just taking a cake pan and put bunch of butter in the bottom and throw the walleyes in there with some salt, pepper, maybe a little garlic and cook it for about 5-8 mins till its done and then get the heck out of the way! The people will be swarming the grill like buzzards!! No need to make it complicated with grilled walleye, the seasonings just cover the already delicious treat!!! Have Fun!

Lately when I've cooked fish on the grill, I've been making blackened walleye/crappie/bluegills/whatever. It's pretty easy, and really good (but a bit on the spicy side). You crank the grill to it's highest setting, put a cast iron skillet on the grates, close the lid, and let the skillet get very hot. DO NOT add butter or oil to the pan. While the skillet is warming up, coat the fillet in butter, then coat with blackened fish seasoning. I use Zataran's brand, but I'm sure others would work. After the skillet is good and hot, add the fillets to the pan, cook for 1-2 minutes (depending on thickness), flip, cook for another 1-2 minutes, and remove.

Do not try cooking this on your stovetop in the house, the smoke will be unbearable.

I've had really good luck using grill planks, just like you would to make salmon or trout. Last time I salt and peppered both sides of the fillets, made a mustard vinagrette (juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 tbls dijon mustard, 1 tsp chopped fresh tarragon and 2-3 tbls EV olive oil) and spooned it on top while laying on alder wood planks. Grill indirectly for about 10-15 minutes with the lid on and you're good to go.

For just a slight version of some methods described above, I take tin foil, lay down the fillets 1/2 thick (any fish will do), season them with salt and lemon pepper seasoning, add some lemon slices (thin), add some onion slices (thin) and add either a partial can of drained petite diced tomatoes (I prefer the Red Gold mix of tomatoes, onion and olive oil) or add a partial jar of your favorite salsa mix. Seal up good with multiple layers of tin foil (so nothing leaks) and grill each side (works for shore lunches over an open fire) for approx 7 minutes. Open up, use a spatula to dish out on a plate and garnish the mix with some Franks Red Hot Sauce and/or tarter sauce. Ohhhh Boy.

    • If you consider the "thugs" as part of the protest group (which DC police even said they weren't, but only intended to do damage) then the answer is yes. The labeling of all because of the actions of a few is something I have and always will disagree with.
    • I clearly stated protest marches and not specifically the womens march. So,knowing that do you still disagree with me?
    • No where yesterday during the woman's march was there violence or racism exhibited. Intolerant towards things Trump wishes to eliminate yes. The damage by vandals occurred on Friday by a group of thugs who had only one purpose in mind and that was to destroy property and create trouble during the inauguration. (DC police even said that and they expected it.) Yes the Woman March did leave garbage to clean up, which can be expected. If you have ever had the experience of cleaning a (female) public restroom you would find out they have a problem with garbage cans. I'm sure most did take their signs with them in the same manner most ice-fisherman take their garbage off the lake with them, but there are some who don't. The top photo is the only one that is of the Woman March.   
    • Can you explain why you feel that way?    
    • I do believe you are out of line with the racist, intolerant, vandals comment.
    • I will slow it down. I did not say you said it was rigged. Your party,however went after Trump for not saying he would accept the election results and then turned around and in large numbers proclaimed they didn't accept the results. I don't expect you to understand the hypocrisy of that but at the same time it's there.   Conjecture. You don't have a single slice of evidence this is the case and you would be wise to retract it because it has no basis. None. Yet even though this is the sort of thing your party is outraged about by the right, you are actually more extreme about it on your side.    While there is direct evidence that the DNC blatantly rigged the Democrat primary in favor of Hillary and committed all manner of things that came out in the Podesta/DNC emails there was no outrage on your side over what they did. Yet you jump on Trump for something that was sold as truth when it was literally the same fake news the Dems have been pushing all cycle.    Considering the contributions that flowed into the Clinton campaign coffers in all manners it would be best to leave that sleeping dog lie.    In the meantime. you might want to take ownership of the mess that the racist, intolerant, vandals that made up the protest marches because you own that.    
    • i always thought they were about identical smoked  
    • Rumor has it they are running a story next week regarding ice fishing and CO. 
    • Looks like one to me. Nice catch  
    • I thought you lefties were against fake news.   Guess not so much anymore.   At least you haven't attacked Barron Trump, yet, unlike your fellow travelers.
