Celebrate the Fishing Opener with Two Healthy Walleye Recipes!

 

In honor of the Fishing Opener on Mother’s Day weekend, our registered dietitians prepared two Walleye recipes that are both delicious and Medifast approved!

Broiled Walleye

Ingredients:

  • 2- 7 ounce walleye fillets
  • 1 ounce chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg for bath

Directions:

  1. Preheat broiler to high. Mix walnuts, spices and Parmesan cheese in a bowl. Scramble the egg in a separate bowl. Dunk fish fillets one at a time into egg bath. Transfer fish to walnut and spice mixture. Coat fillets evenly.  Place fish on a cookie sheet into oven about 6″ below the broiler. (I used the first level down from the top).
  2. Watch fish carefully. It will take between 5-7 minutes to cook fully.  When you notice the cheese starting to brown, check fish every 30 seconds to see if it’s done. Fish will flake easily with a fork when fully cooked.
  3. Turn broiler off and leave fish in oven about 5 minutes. (this is optional, but will ensure it’s cooked all the way and give you a chance to finish the rest of your preparation)
