2  Medium sized Fresh Walleye Fillets (the flesh should look pink, always take the smell test to ensure it smells fresh)

1 Lemon

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Chili powder

1/2 tsp Black Pepper

1 tsp seasoning salt

1 tsp fresh parsley or dried

4 tablespoons of Extra virgin Olive Oil


5 medium yukon potatoes

1 garlic clove

2 heaping tablespoons of sour cream

1/2 tsp. seasoning salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1/4 of a stick of butter

Cut up potatoes crosswise in a sauce pan rinse them through until the cold water runs clear and fill the pot to completely cover the potatoes then place them on the burner.

Boil for about 25 minutes, test with a fork until falling apart easily and the garlic clove should be very easy to smash…don’t remove until then.  Once done, drain, add ingredients and smash with a fork until smooth, cover and set aside.


1 whole green cabbage

7 thin slices of fresh green pepper

1/2 tsp. seasoning salt

1/4 tsp of black pepper

4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

Wash the cabbage, cut around the core, chop the cabbage crosswise in smaller strips and add to a stainless steel pan with lid.

Add the ingredients and cook on low, simmering for about 20 minutes or until you see a clear marked difference in the texture (the photo can help you determine how it should look) Once done, cover and set aside.


Place the fish in a glass dish covered in olive oil and 1/4 cup of water skin side down.  Drizzle the olive oil on the fish and then add your seasonings.

Bake at 450 for 25 minutes.

Remove from the oven and drizzle the whole lemon over the fish while still in the glass dish.

Serve with potatoes and cabbage.

The glass dish will have oil and lemon from the baked fish, take a spoon and from this mixture and drizzle onto your smashed potatoes.
