  • 2 walleye fillets
  • Fresh asparagus spears, trimmed
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • Cajun seasoning
  • Fresh lime juice


Prep the Walleye:

  • Lightly brush both sides of the walleye fillets with olive oil. Sprinkle generously with Cajun seasoning. Finish with a drizzle of fresh lime juice, ensuring the fish is well-coated.

Prep the Asparagus:

  • In a large mixing bowl, toss the asparagus spears with a bit of olive oil until they’re glistening. Sprinkle with Cajun seasoning to taste and toss again. Finish by drizzling with fresh lime juice.

Grill Time:

  • Preheat your grill to 375°F (190°C).
  • Lay the seasoned walleye fillets and asparagus spears on the grill. Cook for about 15 minutes, occasionally turning the asparagus for even cooking. The walleye is done when it easily flakes with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C).

Serve & Enjoy:

  • Plate the grilled walleye and asparagus. Consider serving with a side of Cajun rice or a fresh salad for a complete meal.

Tip: For an even richer flavor, marinate the walleye in the olive oil, Cajun seasoning, and lime mixture for 20-30 minutes before grilling.
