In Search of Walleye


It's that cherished time of year; Minnesota Fishing Opener. 
Remember my husband's guided fishing trip last year?  

He can only hope for that much success this year. But he is on his own without guide help.

Wondering what to do with all the fish you might catch from  Fishing Opener Weekend? 
Try this creative approach to cooking with Walleye and Spring Vegetables Baked in Parchment Paper. 

Walleye 101
Walleye fillets cook quickly, Most will cook in about 5-10 minutes.
Whole walleyes depending on its size, can be grilled, sauteed baked or broiled. 
You can tell the fish is cooked when it flakes easily with a fork and the internal temperature reaches  145 degrees on an instant read thermometer.
Flavor enhancers: lemon slices, toasted almond slices and herbs rosemary. Herbes de Provence or dill.
Some Final Chilly Words...
There are freeze warnings tonight with a low of 29 degrees. Between the cold, some snow flakes and wind you will find me inside this weekend watching out the window to see just how many brave walleye fishermen I can spot.
