Sweet-and-Sour Baked Walleye
by Wayne Phillips
Turn walleyes into something special by topping baked fillets with an Oriental-style sweet-and-sour sauce.
Ingredients for four servings

4 pieces walleye fillets
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
2 Tbsp. cooking oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Sweet-and-sour sauce
6 Tbsp. brown sugar
4 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
3 Tbsp. corn starch
3/4-cup water
1/2-tsp. salt


To prepare sweet-and-sour sauce, place all the ingredients in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring gently to prevent lumps, until the sauce boils. Remove sauce from the heat. Place cooking oil, onion, garlic and ginger in the bottom of a baking dish. Top with seasoned walleye fillets. Bake skin-side up if keeping the skin on the fillets. Bake in a 400-degree oven until the walleye is opaque all the way through. It takes about 10 minutes to cook fish one inch thick. Brush fish with sauce 2 or 3 minutes before finished baking.


Serve over a bed of steamed white rice. Spoon more sauce over the fish before serving. Stir-fried vegetables make a terrific side dish.
