Looking for Walleye on the grill recipe

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • 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?    
    • 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!
