Prep Time:10 mins
Cook Time:25 mins


  • Supplies Needed: Foil or pre-cut foil packets


  • 8 ounces of snow peas
  • 1 cup of matchstick carrots
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves minced and divided
  • 4 nice sized walleye fillets around 6 ounces
  • 1/4 butter room temperature
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and lemon pepper to taste


  • Pre heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Either tear 4 pieces of heavy-duty aluminum foil about 15 inches long or use pre-cut pieces of grilling foil. Rinse fish pat dry with paper towels.
  • Divide the snow peas evenly and place them in the center of each piece of foil. Next, do the same with the matchstick carrot pieces. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and lemon pepper to taste. Divide 3 cloves of the minced garlic amongst the 4 packets - spreading it over the layer of olive oil and seasoning.
  • Lightly sprinkle fish with salt and lemon pepper and place fillets in the center of each foil packet on top of the veggie mixture.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the butter, parmesan cheese, lemon juice, and one clove of minced garlic. Divide the butter mixture amongst the four packets and spread over the top of fish.
  • Seal the foil packets by bringing the longest two sides together and folding them. Next, fold up each end to tightly seal.
  • Place fish fillets packets at the bottom of a shallow baking dish or on a large baking pan to prevent spills. Place the pan into the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until the thickest part of the fillet has an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
