Baked Fish Walleye Recipe

Walleyes Baked with Sweet Peppers & Onions


by Tom Kavanaugh



This is one of my favorites with walleye.

Bass works, too, and so do pike and large panfish. It's a colorful and delicious recipe fit for the fish you keep this fall.


To serve four . . .

1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced

2 tbsp. olive oil


1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper

1/4 tsp. crumbled dry oregano

4 leaves fresh basil, thinly sliced

4 walleye fillets, 6-8 ounces

1 c. dry vermouth

3 tbsp. tomato sauce

-Preheat the oven to 350°F and oil a shallow 3-quart baking dish. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, sauté the onions in oil for about 5 minutes on medium heat.

-Add peppers, garlic, salt, pepper, and herbs, cooking uncovered until the peppers are nearly tender.

-Place the fillets in the prepared dish, spoon the mixture over the fish, and pour in the vermouth and tomato sauce.

-Cover the fish with buttered wax paper and bring to a simmer for 1 to 2 minutes. Then place the fish in the oven for 6 minutes.

-Push the pepper mixture aside and bake the fillets 3 more minutes.

-Transfer fish and vegetables to a serving platter and keep them warm. Drain the cooking juice into a small saucepan and cook to reduce by half. Spoon the sauce over the fish before serving. n
