Boil em,
 I know at the north end tip of a peninsula in Wis the restaurants do it. Also have done it with pike before.

Its not to bad, just boil some water with salt and drop your fish chunks in, and wait till they float to the top. Then dip in butter with some salt and peper, or whatever you want.

Thats ok, but it just taste like MT Dew to me.

Your right i dont think i could get myself to drop some walleye in the pot. Way to good just to boil. But does anyone put them on the grill. We do it with Salmon out of the big lakes. Just fillet out and leave the skin on and wrap the skin in foil. Some onions, lemon, salt, peper, and it makes for a great meal. I do miss me some down rigger fishing for big kings.

I have done it like this before and I thought it was pretty good:

1. Pre heat grill
2. Make aluminum foil pouches of buy some if you feel like spending the money.
3. Put fish, sliced mushrooms, onions, and butter  in bag.
4. Put dry spices or, like I did, Louisiana hot sauce.
5. Seal bag.
6. Shake the hell out of it. 
7. Place on grill. Cooking time varied depending on how much beer I was drinking.
8. Open pouch carefully so you can use it as a plate (less dishes).
9. Enjoy.

90 seconds on a Foreman grill with the seasoning of your choice. The fillets are then equally as good either on some garlic toast or in a Ceasar with a few fresh tomatoes and some fresh Parmesan.

This moment is a paradox, it's the oldest you've ever been as well as the youngest you'll ever be.

Im definatly trying this tomorrow sounds pretty darn good to me.

I like it fried in a pan with butter and season all. Make some scalloped potatos and some stuffing. Throw some fish, taters and stuffing on some toast with a slice of cheese.

YEP!

or wallywiches

double coat it with original shore lunch then cajun shore lunch, deep fry it throw on a toasted bun with a slice of lettuce and cheese then mix up some mayo and french dressing in a bowl and smeer some of that on the bun.

YEP!

So you got a bite...You detected the bite...You set the hook and the line is tight...And now your in for a fight...But whose gonna win?

In place of the butter, Ranch or Caesar salad dressing works well too.

Toasting a little parmesan cheese on top for the last couple minutes of cooking adds a little flavor as well.

One of my favorite ways to prepare walleye that i havent seen many people do is... When you catch a decent sized fish, leave the skin on the fillet, throw it directly on the grill skin side down and spread a little butter, garlic, seasonal salt on the fillet. Grill until you can see it flaking. When you eat it it just flakes right of the skin...yum!!

Bake the fish without any seasoning, flake the meat into a bowl, add to a fresh garden salad with ranch (my favorite) dressing.  Great low cal lunch or whatever.

If you have a smoker, you can smoke walleye. It is like candy. Absolutely Delicious!!

Fillet the walleyes and leave the skin on (remove the ribcage)

Prepare a brine-

- Put enough water to cover your fillets into a large container (we use stainless steel).
-  (we usually do 5 fish so 10 fillets)

- Add enough canning salt in the water to float a raw egg (it will take a lot of salt to do this!!)

- Add 10-12 peppercorns (about 1 peppercorn for every fillet)

-Add 6-8 Bay leaves)

- Add the fillets and soak overnight (you do not want to soak more than 10-12 hours)

- Fire up your smoker to about 140-150

-Add hickory chips and smoke the fillets until they brown up and the tail starts to curl and the meat is flakey. Takes roughly 2 hours or so. ENJOY!!


CAUTION- these will go faster than cupcakes at Rosie O'Donnels birthday party!!!

Grill it plain or flavored with McCormic Mojito Lime Marinade, top shelf of the grill on a piece of tinfoil works best for me.

Make a cucumber salsa
Peel, seed and dice 1/2 cucumber
Add 3/4 cup sour creem
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp dill

Optional - Red pepper flakes

I have this with the normal taco toppings on soft tortilla's.

Something different.

this is how my grandmother has made walleye for yrs.
salt/pepper the flour, coat fillets with flour and place in a 9.5X13 baking pan
pour whipping cream over the fillets, salt/pepper again and bake at 375 until cream starts to turn golden brown.
this goes great with spuds or i really like made with wild rice. my favorite way to make the rice is boil it the night before put in fridge over night. take carrots, onion, celery and saute, while this is happening take chicken stock and add stock and rice to pan and let simmer until stock reduces. you can add other seasoning that you like. the chicken stock/veggies give the rice a tremendous amount of flavor.

the best part of this is the fish is really quick and easy to make only 10min max to prep and 30-45 min to bake......

I'm trying Lycanthropes recipe that he had a picture of last week, only using walleye instead of chicken. If memory serves-onions, peppers, and Walleye, along with pineapple, fried in olive oil. Add fajita seasoning and sweet and sour sauce?. Will try tonite, gonna also add fresh mushrooms.
