Cooking for 4 people


  • 4 boneless, skinless walleye fillets (about 1½ pounds)
  • 3 lemons, thinly sliced

Tartar Sauce

  • 0.5 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped dill pickle
  • 1 tsp. grated lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. snipped fresh dill or 1 teaspoons dried dill
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil

remaining ingredients

  • 0.5 tsp. kosher salt
  • 0.25 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • hot sauce of choice, to taste
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. snipped fresh dill or 1 teaspoons dried dill
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil

to serve

  • 4 soft sub or hot dog rolls
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 cup dill pickle slices
  • 2 cup shredded iceberg or romaine lettuce

1 Food Prep

First, whisk the ingredients for the tartar in a small bowl until smooth. Season with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Next, in a small bowl, combine the remaining lemon zest and juice, dill, garlic and olive oil. Add hot sauce to taste. Set aside.

Finally, season the fish filets on both sides with salt and pepper.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets

Method: Direct-Heat Grilling

Temp: 350°F (Medium Heat)

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Slightly overlap the lemon slices on the grill grates in a pattern to accommodate the fish filets.
  • Place the fish directly on the lemon slices. Brush with the lemon-dill mixture. Cover the grill and cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 145ºF — don’t turn the fish.

  • To assemble, lightly toast and butter the rolls. Spread the tartar sauce on both sides of each roll and place one fish filet into each roll.
  • Top with pickle slices, shredded lettuce and tomato. Serve immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Florida restaurant quality These walleye sandwiches remind me of the ones I tried while living in Florida. A lot of ingredients, but very flavorful.
