Honey Glazed Pan Seared Walleye


  • walleye fillets, 1-2 pounds
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup broth or stock
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon thyme, freshly chopped


In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, broth, honey, mustard, and thyme, and mix until well blended. Transfer to a sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.

Meanwhile, heat butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium high heat until the butter melts and just begins to brown. Add the walleye fillets and quickly sear each side for about 3 minutes until browned. Then immediately pour the honey glaze sauce into the skillet with the walleye fillets and simmer for an additional 3 minutes or until the fish is done by testing for flakiness with a fork.

Serve the fillets on top of rice or sweet potatoes with the honey glaze sauce poured over them.
