Simple Walleye Recipe - Grilled in Foil

We are always so focused on how to catch walleye, so we figured we would take a minute to share how we prepare walleye for a quick meal on the grill! This is a very simple, straight forward recipe! Add whatever sides you like. We typically serve grilled or baked walleye with potatoes and a vegetable. 

  • Pre-heat your grill between 375-400 degrees.
  • We will typically let the grill warm up for a minimum of 5-10 minutes.
  • While the grill is warming up, make some foil boats for the walleye fillets.
  • Lay the fillets in the aluminum foil boat. Make sure the boats are made tall enough to allow them to fully close/seal when cooking. 
  • Add a tablespoon of butter ( or 2 ) to the top of each fillet.
  • Depending how big you make your foil boat, you can typically fit 2 fillets per boat. 
  • Shake on McCormick Grill Mates - Montreal Steak seasoning.  
  • We love this seasoning not only on walleye but potatoes too!
  • This simple seasoning with a little butter is DYNAMITE! 
  • Seal the foil shut and place on the pre-heated grill.
  • Cook for 13-15 minutes or until the fillets start to flake apart.
  • Let stand for a minute or two and chow down!
