Broiled Cajun Walleye

Updated on January 6, 2015

Here is a recipe a little on the lighter side, broiled Cajun walleye fillets. This is a very simple recipe given to me by George, a good friend of mine at work.

George and his son are avid fisherman; all season long they fish the Alleghany River in Western New York for walleye. They fill a freezer full of fresh walleye fillets so they can have it all year long.

One day last week at work George said to me "I brought you lunch today", Cajun broiled walleye, it was delicious, so I asked him for his recipe. Come to find out that George's recipe is so simple as you will see, now if you don't have fresh walleye fillets, you can really use any fish that you like, but I prefer the walleye.

So if you're looking for something on the lighter side in the days following that big Holiday meal, try George’s Fresh Broiled Cajun Walleye, you're going to like it, I'm sure. George serves this with green beans and rice, this makes for a healthy family meal.

  • Any Fish Fillet you like (Fresh of course)
  • Butter
  • Cajun Seasoning or (Any seasoning you prefer)


  1. Place you fish fillets in a Glass baking dish or a cookie sheet lined with tin foil
  2. Spray the baking dish or tin foil with cooking spray so the fish won't stick
  3. Add a pad of butter on top of each fillet
  4. Sprinkle on your cajun seasoning, or any seasoning you prefer
  5. Set your oven on broil
  6. Broil for 7 to 10 minutes
  7. You can turn them over if you like, but George doesn't recommend it as the fillets may break apart.

      I will definitely try this recipe. Walleye is the best eating fish on the planet. Of course, there is nothing better than going fishing up north and cooking it right on the shoreline. Lots of good memories doing that with my dad. Thanks for giving me a new way to spice things up.

      Oh, this looks scrumptious. I have not had Walleye but I'm sure thinking about trying this with bass. :)

      I like the sound of this recipe! I wish I knew some fishermen who could supply me with the fresh walleye (or the frozen walleye). We used to eat it when I was growing up, since my dad and uncles liked to fish in northern Minnesota.
