Serves 2 to 4

Using four 4-6oz walleye fillets

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp. olive oil

3 sprigs fresh rosemary

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tbsp. chopped parsley


Directions: Prepare a charcoal or gas grill. The fire should be medium-hot and the grill rack should be about 4 inches from the heat source. Rinse the walleye fillets and pat dry with paper towels. In a small dish whisk together the lemon juice and olive oil. Place several sprigs of rosemary into the cavity of the fillets. Season the fillets with salt and pepper. Grill or broil the walleye about 5 minutes per side, basting several times with the lemon juice and oil. The fish is done when the flesh is white and flaky and an instant read thermometer reads 145 degrees.

Discard the rosemary. Plate in either 2 or 4 servings.

Drizzle the fillets with the remaining lemon mixture, season with salt and pepper, and garnish with chopped parsley and lemon wedges.
