How to Broil Walleye in Foil
Broil walleye for a quick meal.

Walleye are the largest member of the perch family, according to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Walleye cooked using a dry heat method like broiling has about 148 calories per 4.4-oz fillet. It is rather lean with 2 g of fat, high in protein and a good source of potassium. Walleye can be prepared by frying, baking, grilling or broiling. However, broiling walleye in foil makes for a quick cleanup and seals in the flavor.

Step 1

Set the broiler rack 4 inches from the heat source. If the walleye is frozen, set the broiler rack 6 to 8 inches from the heat source.

Step 2

Preheat your broiler for 10 minutes.

Step 3

Spray the broiler pan with cooking spray.

Step 4

Place the walleye on a sheet of foil big enough to fold all the way around the fish.

Step 5

Drizzle the walleye on both sides with olive oil. Salt and pepper your walleye to taste. Add other seasoning or flavoring, such a slice of lemon or 2 tbsp. of wine, if desired.

Step 6

Wrap the foil around the walleye, and seal the ends of the foil by folding them.

Step 7

Place the wrapped walleye on the broiler pan, and place the pan on the broiler rack.

Step 8

Broil the walleye for 10 minutes or until done. Check for doneness by carefully pulling back the foil. Walleye should be opaque and flake when touched with a fork.
