Used pan fish instead of walleye and it was delicious! It also was an easy way to make fish for a bunch of people as we made a couple of pans at the same time. This will be a regular recipe for us going forward. Thanks for posting!

The basil and Lemon Pepper didn't really meld well with the Walleye. I understand wanting a simple recipe but salt and pepper would have been better than this combination.

Really easy and sooo good. I went a little heavier on the lemon pepper. It was perfect with a good white wine!! Now I am craving it again:-).

I didn't use the lemon pepper because mine was expired by 4 years.. but i had fresh lemons and fresh ground pepper... i think the basil wasn't really necessary. I would make it again... maybe skip the basil

LOVED it! Nice change from fried walleye. Will try on other fish for sure! I did add salt.

It's quick and easy but the combination of Basil and Lemon Pepper didn't really accentuate the natural flavor of Walleye

What a great technique for cooking walleye! I used lemon pepper and Greek seasoning (what I had on hand) and loved the simplicity. Good walleye doesn't need much more. My only problem is my husband brought home a huge fish so it took triple the time to cook. I can't wait to make this again with normal sized filets!

I thought this recipe was excellent. My Walleye fillets were quite large so it took a little longer than the directions said but I will definitely make this again.

Very simple very flavorable!! Instead of walleye-I used halibut & it was very good! I'd make it again.
