Oven-Baked Walleye


The Lake Erie waters just off of Cleveland and northeast Ohio teem with walleye, particularly in the spring and the fall. Here's a regional favorite, baked not fried.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 6 Tbsp. milk
  • 3 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup corn flake crumbs
  • 4 walleye fillets, cleaned and boned
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • Garlic powder
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix together milk, lime juice, mustard, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place the corn flake crumbs in a flat container. Dip the fish in the milk mixture and then in the cornflake crumbs, coat both sides. Place fish on non-stick baking sheet. Spray with olive oil cooking spray. Bake until lightly brown, about 10 minutes. Turn the fish and spray the other side with olive oil cooking spray. Bake until crisp.
