Butter Smoked Walleye w/Qview

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Walleye being the lean white flaky delicate fish that it is and does not lend itself well to general fish smoking such as salmon and trout I decided to try an alternative cook on them. I took a pan and lined it with foil and threw a couple stix(yup a couple) you will have to adjust this as your dietary needs require. put in smoker and melted the butter and took whole fillets and dredged in the butter both sides and laid them flat in the pan. along with the fish i includded a thinly sliced vidalia onion, a sliced lime, some fresh dill, and seasoned with lemon pepper. had smoker on 225 and placed on top shelf until thickest portion flaked.

the raw material

In butter with lime,onion,dill, and lemon pepper

Done, flakes at thickest portion

Plated Butter Smoked Walleye

thks for ckin my Qview

Very fine looking fish smoke, the vidalia onions are a great addition to your recipe. Is this a recipe you would repeat? Reason I ask is, by the looks of it, it is something I want to try.

Fished LOW 4 years in a row from Springsteel, good times and good fishing !!!

yessir, i am going to repeat this for sure, only tweaking i want to do is with the lemon pepper. i didnt have any lemons and was too lazy to go get some. next time i use fresh lemon and cracked pepper i think. the butter in the pan kinda keeps them bathed and if you pull as son as flakes will have perfect done fish. kinda been thinkin of a way to make walleye in a smoker for a while now and finally figured to give it a shot. yea the fishing was greeat, caught many fish above the 19.5 slot as well. i think V tryin to get a boat ride outta me. lol

LOW is my favorite lake to fish and i fish it way too often winter and summer. only my first trip up this summer sofar though. goin back for labor day weekend. might even stay over night!!!!

As time get's closer to winter we should try to plan a LOW hard water weekend. I will be just as busy this winter with this move, as I am this summer, but by that time I will be in desperate need of a break.

That looks great Erain. Haven't tried eyes on the smoker cause I thought they would be too dry. I will try it this way though. Used to go to Mille Lacs about 6-7 times every summer for the great walleye fishing. Never been farther north to fish. Need to get back up there some time.

Real nice mess of fish Erin. The finished product is even better looking, great job wink.gif

Nice Job Erain,
I have used a similar recipe for grilling I will have to try this on some of these big gills that are waiten for me out in the pond. I never liked smoked less fat freshwater fish much but yours looked great Thanks... We used to cut up pieces of walleyes add a bacon wrap and grill they were even good cold I should try that on the smoker also.

Sooo how were they? Looks GREAT! I LOVE walleye...and had always rejected them for smoking because of the reasons ya mentioned. Plus..with a light beer batter, I figgered they were Heaven already! But yummmm...I'll have to try this!
