Grilled Walleye
The addition of the pecans on this fish gives not only great flavor to this fish recipe but a nice crunch that really makes this Walleye stand out.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 2


  • 12 oz walleye fillets
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped and toasted
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon orange juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


Combine butter, chives, juice and half the pecans in a small bowl and mix well. Preheat grill. Take a 12 inch square piece of aluminum foil and cut 2 inch slits into it every two inches. Spray with a nonstick spray and place on grill. Put the Walleye Fillets on the foil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and grill for 8-12 minutes. The fillets are done when the fish flakes easily with a fork. One minute before the fish is done top with the pecan butter. Remove from heat and sprinkle the remaining pecan pieces over top before serving.

Wonderful, Member cobaltmama

I decided to try this based on the reviews. I didn't have orange juice, so subbed lemon and some olive oil instead of all butter. It was really good with green beans and a salad. I can't wait to try with orange juice and I may sub crappie.
