Try this Korean-inspired walleye for an easy dinner.

This simple Korean-inspired glaze comes together quickly, meaning a delicious fish dinner can be on the table in just 30 minutes. While the recipe calls for walleye, any firm, white fillets will do. Or try the glaze with salmon, adjusting the cooking time accordingly. For an extra kick, whisk in a little chili-garlic sauce.


1 lb. walleye fillets
3 Tbsp. honey
1 ½ Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1 tsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
Optional: 1 tsp. Sriracha or chili-garlic sauce
Sesame seeds


1. In a shallow dish, whisk together honey, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and, if desired, Sriracha. Dredge the walleye fillets through the glaze, coating both sides. Marinate for 30 minutes to an hour.

2. Place the oven rack about 6 inches from the top of the oven and set the oven to broil.

3. Place the fillets in a broiler pan or other cooking dish, and set under the broiler. Broil until cooked through, about 8 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets. Remove fillets from the oven, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve over rice or noodles with a side of kimchi.
