Home > Recipes > Walleye Recipes > Grilled Walleye With Citrus Butter


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped toasted pecans, divided

  • 2 teaspoons orange juice

  • 1 teaspoon thinly sliced fresh chives

  • Cooking spray, or oil

  • 2 (6-ounce) walleye fillets

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine the butter, half of the pecans, orange juice, and fresh chives in a small bowl and mix well.

  3. Prepare a medium (350°F to 375°F) gas or charcoal grill fire.

    Spray a 12-inch square piece of foil with nonstick spray or brush it with oil and then place it on the grill.

  4. Put the walleye fillets on the foil and sprinkle them with salt and pepper.

  5. Grill for 6 to 9 minutes. Top the fillets with the pecan butter. Grill until the internal temperature of 140 F is reached, the butter is melted, and the fish flakes easily with a fork, 1 to 3 minutes more.

  6. Remove the fish from the heat and sprinkle the fillets with the remaining pecans before serving.
