Bacon Honey Walleye

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Grill: 15 min.


8 servings

The texture and flavor of the walleye is only enhanced by this recipe‘s savory-sweet topping. It takes only a few minutes to grill.


  • 16 bacon strips, partially cooked
  • 4 walleye fillets (2-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced onion
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Fold four 18x15-in. pieces of heavy-duty aluminum foil in half; fold up edges to make pans about 12x7 in. Place four strips of bacon in each foil pan; top each with a fillet and 1/4 cup onion. Drizzle with butter and honey. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Grill, covered, over medium heat until fish flakes easily with a fork, 12-15 minutes. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Cut fillets in half; serve each with 2 bacon strips.
