A fresh sweet pepper and corn salsa tops the fish in this recipe. It's cooked in corn husks, making for a fun presentation.


Corn Roasted Walleye
Recipe from 
Servings: 4 servings
Prep Time: 45 mins
Total Time: 5 hrs 10 mins
     to 16  fresh or dried corn husks
    1/4  cup  butter, softened
    1/2  teaspoon  finely shredded lemon or orange peel
     8-ounce  skinless walleye pike fillets or other desired white fish fillets
        Salt and pepper
     cup  Roasted Corn Salsa (see recipe below)
Soak the corn husks in warm water for 4 to 24 hours to soften. Pat with paper towels to remove excess moisture. For citrus butter, in a small bowl stir together the butter and lemon or orange peel; set aside.
Place each fish fillet lengthwise on 2 overlapped corn husks. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper, top each with 1/4 cup Roasted Corn Salsa, and dot each with 1 tablespoon of the butter mixture. Fold the long edge of the husk over the fish so the edges meet. Tie ends securely with pieces of corn husk or string. Or, if husks are not large enough, place 2 additional husks atop salsa mixture and tie with kitchen string to enclose the fish.
Place bundles on a baking sheet. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 25 minutes. (Fish should flake easily when tested with a fork.) Makes 4 servings.
