Herbs and melted cheese dress up fillets in this recipe recommended by Cathy Lueschen from Columbus, Nebraska. "When I want a quick fish dinner, this is the recipe I turn to," she relates.


  • 4 to 6 walleye fillets (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  1. Place walleye in a greased shallow 3-qt. or 13x9-in. baking dish. In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce, parsley, Italian seasoning, basil, salt and pepper; pour over fish.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
