Ingredients

  • 1 lb Walleye Fillet
  • 1 Lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • capers, optional

Cooking Instructions

Drizzle the walleye pieces with the juice of 1/2 lemon, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Spray the pan with cooking spray. Cook for three minutes, then turn over. (Note: if the meat does not turn readily, the fish needs to cook a bit longer.) Cook for three more minutes, then transfer to a baking dish in the oven for five minutes more.

Once the fish is in the oven, turn the heat on the stove up to high and pour the wine in the skillet, stirring constantly to deglaze the pan. Let the liquid reduce by half and squeeze in a bit of juice remaining in the lemon. Turn the heat to low, then add the butter one tablespoon at a time. Stir with a whisk. Add capers to the sauce, if desired, and serve over the fish.
