A flakey fish dinner, this Baked Walleye with White Wine Sauce is packed with flavor. The buttery wine sauce covers colorful, spiced fish fillets and provides a comforting and calorie-conscious dinner. 


  • 16 Ounces Walleye fillet
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, cut into small cubes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons shallots, minced
  • ½ cup White Wine, such as chardonnay

  • Salt, to taste
  • Fresh cracked pepper, to taste 
  • Lemon, to garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Place fish in appropriate baking dish (I use a 9x13 glass baking dish)
  3. Add white wine
  4. Add salt, pepper, and paprika evenly over fish
  5. Spread garlic and shallots evenly over entire dish
  6. Spread chunks of butter evenly over fish
  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until the thickest part of the fish reaches 145° Fahrenheit.
