2 walleye fillets

2 tbsp olive oil

1 lemon (half zested and juiced, half sliced)

2 garlic cloves, minced

Fresh herbs (like dill or parsley), finely chopped

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Preparation: Ensure the walleye fillets are clean and free from scales. Pat them dry with a paper towel.

  2. Marinate: In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, fresh herbs, salt, and pepper. Place the walleye fillets in a dish or a resealable plastic bag, and pour the marinade over them. Ensure the fish is well-coated and let it marinate for 15-30 minutes.

  3. Preheat Grill: While the fish is marinating, preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

  4. Grill: Once the grill is heated, oil the grill grates to prevent sticking. Place the walleye fillets on the grill, skin-side down. Grill for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. The actual grilling time might vary depending on the thickness of the fillets.

  5. Serve: Remove the grilled walleye from the grill and place it on a serving platter. Garnish with fresh herbs and lemon slices.

  6. Enjoy: Serve immediately with your choice of sides. Grilled vegetables, a light salad, or cauliflower rice pairs wonderfully with grilled walleye.

Note: It's essential not to overcook walleye as it can become dry. Keep a close eye on it, and use a thin spatula for flipping to ensure the fillets remain intact.
