Walleye Stir-Fry Recipe

Walleye Stir-Fry Recipe
Print Recipe

This is an easy fish recipe that works any time of year. Pike and panfish like perch and crappie work well, too. And it's good for you. And tasty, too.

Serves: 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes


  • 1 pound walleye fillets, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, finely minced
  • 3 tablespoons dark sesame oil
  • 3 to 4 cups mixed vegetables, cut into 2-inch chunks (carrot, celery, Napa or bok choy, cauliflower, broccoli, snow peas, or sweet pepper)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce mixed with 4 tablespoons water
  • Zest & juice of 1 lime or lemon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Cilantro sprigs for garnish
  • Sesame seeds for garnish


  1. In a heavy bottom or cast-iron pan, heat the sesame oil over medium-high until hot. Add the fish and stir to cook quickly, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the garlic, ginger, and all the vegetables and stir for 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add the soy-water mixture all at once and cover the pan. Cook on high heat for about 5 minutes.
  4. Taste the fish and vegetables to be sure they are cooked the way you like them. Cook longer if necessary. Vegetables should be crispy.
  5. Add the lime juice and chopped cilantro.
  6. Serve the walleye stir fry on rice or noodles garnished with sesame seeds and cilantro sprigs.
